I would strongly recommend Darin @ West End Alignment in Gardena. I know that's a long way from San Diego, but it's worth it. He does street and race alignments for cars from all across the west. People bring their cars to him from SF, Phoenix, Vegas, etc.

I originally had my alignment done at another shop and I was not happy with the the way it felt, plus the steering wheel was off center. So I took my car to Darin, he straightened it out very quickly.
Thanks, I'll definitely take my car to him. Sounds like he knows what he's doing.

Regarding my previous experience, I had the alignment done a week after spring install at the dealer, but the car was STILL pulling. I even went back and they did it again, but to no avail. That's what I want to avoid this time around.
