EA or Sam's Garage are the best places in the GTA to get alignments, but neither are downtown.

Looking good - your wheel gap looks perfect with the springs.

Are you looking at getting a diffuser later on for the exhaust?

Engineered Automotive is in Concord and Sam's Garage is in Markham.
IMO, EA is the best, they charge around $200 last time I got one done there, it was a few years ago.

well, i suppose 200 is a small price to pay to be absolutely sure you're not wearing out tires too quickly, i'll look them up, thanks!

Just ask for Sheldon in service and tell him you want an alignment, he has the first desk as you walk-in, tell him Samir sent you.

I have known him for almost 6 years now, he'll take care of you and your mods
