Alignment shop recommendations?
 
like the title says, anyone? NW side of town preferably, but willing to drive for greater Toyota expertise. Need both solid front (toe-in) and IFS. TIA! :)

Trepke in Lafayette did a good job when I lifted my '02 Taco. Also honest enough to tell me not to bother when I enquired about balancing the mud T/A's on my 40, (old 33X12.50s mud tread probably not going to get any better) vs. Discount who was going to happily take my money anyway.

They are Cottora supporters.

Merrill Frame and Axle - 17th and Yarrow. Right near W. Colfax and Wadsworth Bl. They get two thumbs up from me.

You a member of cottora? Still have the 02?

I am the former VP... Andrew.

Nah, couldn't keep up with the payments, sold it and paid cash for 2 cruisers. The Cottora board isn't much fun when you don't have a Taco. Still miss it though, TRD Dbl Cab with a topper and Doug's 2" spacers in the coils. Cruiser parts run me slightly less than the payments were per month, so I guess I'm coming out ahead.

Back on target: Nakman: Did you decide where to get your alignments?

trepek did work for me as well, but I thought they were a bit overpriced on just toe in and toe out on a solid axle truck. If I remember right it was about 75 dollars. But it was close and I wanted the print out for some information. I have talked with Matt (the big O manager here in louisville). I do not know the price, but I have had nothing but great service from him. I am looking into buying my next tires from his shop. He was talking about a new alingmnet system he just bought the last time I was him. I will try his shop next time I need some work done that I can not do. Any how good luck. I know steve has been using his shop for a long time (talking dino time), they may still use a toe in/ toe out bar, the old timers way. later robbie

I haven't yet.. but appreciate all the comments. Will probably stay up here in Louisville/Laffayette land since it's so close to the house.

Hey Andrew, you have a handy link to the illustrious greywire mod? :o
