Thanks.
CAN-Alignment knows what they are doing! They set up race cars and do corner balancing as well. The owner may might lecture a bit about suspension travel for slammed cars haha but he is s super nice guy.

I had my GT-R done there and E30 Girl had her dumped E36 done there.

What really pisses me off is that on my bill, they're pushing a $60 spring special which looks much more involved than the 30 minutes that the tech spent on my vehicle! And that $60 includes a lube!

Go to pan-pan alignment right by StanceFactory. Great price and the guy that did my car really put in the effort and was actually quite frustrated he couldn't get the rear toe to exactly what I wanted (he was 0.01 off both sides).

Bumping up an old thread, just figured I'd put my 2 cents in.

I've had lowered cars for a while and I've always gone to woodbridge alignment simply because they have no rack and no matter the drop, they can still align it. I am not a fan of the attitude or price, but it was my only option.

I took a chance and decided to go elsewhere and just wanted to give the east end people a heads up on a well kept secret. A place at 600 danforth road called Level Auto seemed decent as per google reviews. I called them up, they had me in within the hour with no wait (by appointment). Very clean shop, younger guys using some of the latest laser equipment took care of my car and did an excellent job. Without me even giving them what I wanted they made sure not to over correct camber in case it rubs, toe was corrected, etc and i got a print out of everything before and after (most places don't even give you this). Aside from the excellent and timely service, they only charge $75 + tax for a 4 wheel alignment.

I am not affiliated to them, I don't know them, nor do I care to write reviews about shops, but considering what's out there, I'd highly recommend taking your business to these guys. You won't be disappointed.

Thanks for your review on lelevauto. I read a few good reviews about it and was planning on taking my car there, but now I definitely will. As soon as my RTABs arrive and I install them my car goes there. I hope I can make it before their special runs out.

CAN-alignment sure seem to be the best of the best, but is the price and the drive really worth it? Not to me.

I'm not driving a race car, just a grocery getter.

That's where I got my alignment done and I'm pretty happy. Mark dialed in my custom settings and he has good equipment. I'll be going back there after I install some more suspension goodies.

Just got my alignment done at levelauto. Took the car there due to the fact that my rear toe was way out and wore out the insides of my tires to the metal while the outside was almost new, also installed 4 tires.

Pretty satisfied, giving the fact that I'm a very picky and anal customer. Mark aligned it to what I wanted, no questions asked.

Very friendly service, clean place , organized and everyone called me Sir, which never happened in my life. So thats a plus.

This is my initial feedback, I'll be checking back after a few months to see if the alignment helped. Suspension is all new(fcab, rtab, rms, hats all new) so the only variable was alignment.

Another happy LevelAuto customer . It was well worth the drive to Scarborough after getting a $99 screw-over at IAC, and a month searching, I'm glad I finally went to Level. They're amazingly fast and cheap. They had 3 techs working on my vehicle. I was in at my appt. time and out within 30 minutes. I feel like going there for regular service even though I'm a diehard DIYer.

I still can't get over the $1600 estimate for repairs that IAC tried to shove down my throat. I felt like reporting them to W5 after seeing their recent expose on car repair scams at places like C.T. and Active G.R. The IAC tech tried to turn a bit of left-over grease from a recent BJ replacement into a need to replace a non-existent ruptured rubber boot. At least they didn't intentionally swab new grease all over the place! They tried to hold me by wanting a deposit for parts. I have never seen that ploy before! Admittedly, I shouldn't have told them that I was going to do the repairs myself because that's probably why they charged me $99 for the 30 minute pre-inspection. I paid cash because I didn't want leave my credit card with those slimeballs. I guess you live and learn.

I think all the money they make goes to maintaining that aquarium
