Alignment shop rec.

I need to get my alignment re-done since I just lowered my car. Any suggestions on where to go in Socal? The closer to west LA the better. I was thinking GMG but that seems like overkill.

Most car fanatics in this area will see Darrin at West End Alignment.

Went to Stokes Tire Pros today. I give them an A+, they are one of the nicest wheel and tire shops I have ever been to. Their techs really know their stuff and the shop area is really clean - always a sign of quality.

+ 1 million.

He's the one. By a loooooong shot. But you'll have to be patient. He usually has a two week waiting list. He will set your car up the way you want (street, track, etc.).... and correctly.

He's legendary. I won't let anybody else tune the chassis on my P-car.

ps., just spoke with him (I'm going to go to a PSS-10 set-up), and since racing season is coming up he's going to have more like a three-four week waiting list. But don't let that force to to choose somebody else. He's the best in the West.

Another Bump for WEST END and Darrin!

He setup my S2000 and I couldn't believe the change in handling. I'd say he's a car handling artist! He has you sit in the car, asks you what you want from it, handling and tire wear wise...

If you're serious about driving, then Darrin is your man.
