last time I went for alignment it was around 65 to 70 bucks, this was for a stock alignment. don't know if that's a good price, but yea, they do good work.

as for recon station, jboy671 got it right, there's only one station and its by appointment only. it's in Kaimuki under the overpass.

here's intel about it,

bro be aware they may not pass you because of the notch some say gotta be wleded to pass some say no can at all
i went in before i notched passed then cut it up
just a heads up bro hopefully they dont really notice just be on time be friendly and talk story it helps alot make sure all your lights are legal, tint, and have your alignment sheet cause they will check everythiung should pass i just would be worried about the notch sometimes they let it pass sometimes they dont they change their rules and reasons alll the time

i dont think should be a problem everyone says no can gotta exit but on my slammed 2000 sierra i had i took em good year with recon dumped exhaust before the axle and they failed me for 2 small sticker on my windshield in the corners never said anything else was wrong

For safety checks, the exhaust must exit after the passenger cabin. As long as the tip goes past the cab it's good to go. SUVs were arguable, since we would consider the most rear window as the end to the passenger cabin, we discouraged people from chopping and dumping directly after the muffler on suvs.


Also, this can be used against you if pulled over or vehicle impounded and thoroughly inspected. Safety check laws and the hawaii revised statues that the law enforcement officers go by are two different things. §291-22 Regulation of exhaust pipe and muffler. It shall be unlawful for any person to drive upon the public highways any motor scooter, as defined in section 286-2, the exhaust pipe or muffler of which has been so changed from the factory design as to increase the volume or audibility of the explosions within the motor thereof.

you could potentially fail both. what part is rubbing, minor trimming can fix quite a few rubs. especially if its just slightly...

i have 275/70/18's on my truck which is stock height, I had to trim a little bit of the fender flare and remove the front mud flaps, no more rubbing except over big bumps.

Hey Conor... are those scratches (in the pic) from the mud flaps??? If so, I have some too, but I'm glad they don't show that easily on my silver..

My truck is making some fluttering noises, I believe its a cracked muffler/exhaust. Will I pass the safety check/ recon check? If not... Any recommended places?

There's 2 days left to get your new safety checks the old way.....


Who knows if there's a way to get around the new system......

At least I have a whole year before I need to worry about the new way.....
