Most places do a corner balance, then an alignment, and just call it a day. Unfortunately doing an alignment after a corner balance will often send your corner balance off by 1% or more. They showed me this when I was first getting my car setup.

I drive a BMW so I take my car to get setup by people who race BMW's. If you've just got a stock car or don't do any track driving just go to the dealer
Does Lang Racing align by hand or hunter laser? Been having some issues with my car. Had 3 alignments the past year with issues after every one of them. I'm thinking its more a car issue than the aligner.

I've never gotten so much attention to my specific requests until I started taking the car there. They went so far as to look at my tire temperature records and adjusted the alignment accordingly.
Hmmmmm, you bump a 2.5 year old thread and have 2 total posts...
