Where to corner balance?



Im swapping my GC springs. When I had them done before, I got an alignment and corner balance at Mantis Racing, and I was happy with them, but I think they could have gotten the weights even closer. Anyone know anywhere else that does a really good corner balance? I know EA does it too, I might try them this time.

They are swapping my springs, installing rear Powerflex RTAB kit, front GC control are bushings, alignment and corner balance.
Somewhere around $1500 cash.

Say hi to Lou for me... he originally wanted to rebuild my 2.8 for $14,000.00 and no warranty when the rings gave.
