Cantrell does very good work but they are pricey.

Tru-line did a suspension install and alignment for me. Byron is extremely experienced - he aligned my car to my desired specs and corner balanced to within a pound. If you go there, let him know I sent you.

i've been using firestone for last 3 and half years, over 20 times without any issue. lifetime alignment costed me $150 so you do the math. i must admit that i abuse the service a little bit since it doesn't cost me any more. every 2~3 months or everytime suspension parts were installed/swapped, alignment is the first thing i do...

Firestone I think is straight up alignment. They don't have the tools to do corner balance and other advance stuff like other shops.
