Vancouver BC wheel alignment

Post by Beev »

Anyone have wheel alignment shop suggestions for Vancouver, BC area? I have futofab up front and the Datsport rear cross. Think I only need a tweak but the car keeps pulling left.

Make sure you know what you want for specs before you go in. A lot of places won't have the factory specs if that is what you want and if you want a racier setup most places will have no idea.
If no one from the future comes back to stop you from doing it then how bad of a decision can it really be?

I send all my stuff to Dales in Langley. A little out of the way but
they have never disappointed me.

thats if it had adjustable TC rods and adjustable rear a arms- most of the "younger" guys dont know how to adjust anything other than OEM.. so this race car stuff leaves them having to think
