average alignment cost?

dammit, firestone stopped listening to customers now they only do factory spec alignments. sucks. before they would do whatever you wanted... thats why i bought the lifetime alignment from then a few years ago.

now i gotta pay someone to get an alignment each time, bummer. is $90 a good price? the place isnt just some random shop, its a tuner shop with nice cars... not the average car garage.

$90 is about average which makes me appreciate working at a dealership. I can just get one of the tech's to do it for me for like $30.

BMW dealership charges $60 for alignment, and I've done there 3 times for free (had to tweak it every time I changed something)

yup, im actually getting kinda tired of the oval tips. been wanting the 4" round tips recently.


i paid like 125 for my lifetime warranty at firestone. i guess i can still use their lifetime services when i put the stock wheels back on in the winter, i wouldnt mind a factory spec alignment then.

190 NTB will do whatever spec you want for 5 years. I get to stand there and watch my car being worked on and tellem whatever I want. I got a 50 dollar discount too cause one lazy shop screwed me. 140 for 5 years isnt bad :P.
