    The dealerships charge $79.99. They are my best choice. Seriously.

    Go to David's shop. Seriously, he does top quality work and knows Tacomas.

    He aligned my long travel pile of crap and can definitely get yours set up properly.

    Start calling offroad stores in your area and ask where they refer for alignments?

    LOL...I just posted in that other alignment thread about how you are hating on Firestone-

    You bring them something complex and you probably aren't going to get a great result....You have to set it up or show them what you want- cause other wise they are going to get it as close as they can and call it done.
    They don't get paid to spend two hours working on your rig....They could do three or four normal cars in that time....

    hey dave............^^^^^^ do you think thats a good idea to do........ set them at -2.0 and slide the top camber adjustment in closer to the car a little bit then bring it back and see what the measurments are then
    i mean id love to bring it to your shop you are the best from what i hear......but it just too far for now
