Alignment shop made pull worse. Any better shops in OC?

    After reading fairly good reviews on yelp, I went to 714 Tires to get my alignment done. All they did was fix my toe, but couldn't do anything about my camber and caster, which was causing a pull.

    I've read about the firestone lifetime deal, but I'm not sure if I trust them working on a lifted truck.

    Can anyone recommend a shop that does a good alignment and can work with lifted trucks? I also would rather not pay $100+ on an alignment.

    B&D alignment in Whittier does a good job.

    If you don't mind the drive but want it done right, Simpson Frame and Alignment in Hollywood do great work. Unfortunately it's a bit of a trek from the OC though.

    Did they give you a reason for not being able to make the adjustments? It seems to me there are bigger issues here than the shop doing the work.

    go to just tires on lincoln and knott over by knotts berry farm i think and ask for ben he did my truck and rc freaks and alignment of offroad vehicles is his specialty and it comes with a 6 month or 6,000 miles warranty so u can get it aligned as often as you like for 90 bucks not a bad deal

    All they said is that the camber adjustment were "maxxed out". Whatever that means...:confused: He also said it could be because of my lift. My inner tie rod needs to be replaced, so I wonder if that could be causing some issues.
