Don't they charge like $200 for an alignment?

Not a fan of Altech, went for an alignment when I didn't know that a rear control arm (camber arm) bushing was dust. They completely missed that it was destroyed and aligned with a disintegrated bushing. needless to say I'm out $1400 because my tires were shaved to nothing in 2,000 kms.

I know I went for an alignment, but you'd expect someone to check the parts they are adjusting in order to determine if the resulting job they do is worth it.

Also called them afterwards cause I had vibration in the wheel (when there was none before) and they told me, essentially, that it was my fault.

Not a fan.
