    I finally got my 3" lift fit on and put my wheels. Now I need to do balancing and alignment. I setup two appointments already and I was turned down by both places saying that they do not do any alignment and balancing for my kind of truck. Can anyone recommend an affordable and nearby business?
    I'm in the Cerritos Area between Orange county and LA county.

    Thanks in advance guys!

    Though not exactly close to you, I can vouch for Porter's alignment in Redondo Beach. For 70 bucks, he will get your truck driving better than brand new.

    Never heard of a place turning down business because of a lift. Most standard balancing machines will handle up to a 35" or greater ... and your lift has nothing to do with their ability to align it.
