    Does anyone know of a good alignment shop that will work with the LR UCA's? Two shops I have gone to so far refuse to touch them and want to do everything through factory adjustments only.

    Thanks

    If you're willing to travel to Denville we can set you up with the best alignment shop in the northeast.

    David Tarantino and his crew are incredible and have first hand experience working with the LR UCAs.

    Morris county area. I work in Basking Ridge area and frequent Franklin Lakes Area. So, anywhere around there I guess. I will travel a little bit for a good recommendation.

    Thanks

    Dave!!!! You rock! Truck drives great! Thank you so much for getting me in and out of there so quickly. It was a pleasure meeting you.

    ETD Discount tire in Dernville is the place to go for an alignment. I had some bone head do the alignment last week...terrible. Broke the tabs too... grrr. Dave and the crew fixed the alignment up perfectly!

    David is your men. Sorry but I don't know the other guy in Jersey City. It may be a very good guy,,, but I just have no experience with him.
    In fact Dave,,, I need to pass by you again. I want to adjust the top nut on my LR to -1* or even -1.75* Then try to get the alignment again. The reason is that the tires is touching the plastic in the back and I don't like the sound. I know that my not be able to get 2.4* caster but I will settle for 2.1,2.2*.
    May be I can pass by Monday and I am pretty sure that we, will make it perfect again. Give you a call Monday.

    Nice to be back guys.
