Good Alignments, South Bay?

Near San Jose or as close as possible. I asked at a local Firestone. The sales guy said even he won't align his lifted truck (F150) at his own shop. Says their equipment can't do it right. He recommended 4WheelParts. The local 4WPs kinda scared me away already, yet this was the second time they were recommended.

How about Sears? Skips Tires? Or Any place for lifetime alignments?

Then where for lifted trucks? It seems the regular shops don't know how to do lifted applications

I doubt it. Too easy to screw up the alignment by hitting a rock, the curb, etc. They have a lifetime wheel balance though.

some firestones have lifetime alignment but not sure if they will do it for a lifted truck....maybe depends on which firestone you go to.

I just called Sears and they said that modified suspensions don't qualify for lifetime alignments. One time only alignment is $80 and no warranty on that one. And they may not even be able to align it at all. Forget it. Pay for an alignment that may not be right!
