Default Getting Alignment in Detroit Mi area

Looking to get an alignment done.

Will have after tonight yoko s-drives 195/50/15 on 15x7 et36 with fm2.5 suspension.

Probably will call 949 to get them to recommend me an alignment.

Mostly an aggressively driven street car, with no PS.

Anyone can recommend me a good shop?

How hard is this to do yourself btw?

You don't need to call 949. Just look up their supermiata street duty alignment on their website and get to that as close as possible.

Everything you need to know: Miata Race alignment

As far as where to go, people will have their preferences and gripes, but I paid for the lifetime alignment at Firestone which was $150. Worth it's weight in gold as far as I'm concerned since I get alignments maybe 3 times a year. Saves a lot of money. I'm lucky enough to have 2 pretty decent firestones in my area as well that do a good job and let me sit in the car while they align it.

****, you are lucky! I was going to do the lifetime alignment at firestone, but when I told them the alignment specs I wanted they said "we align to factory specs". I was stunned and disbelieving when I heard that! I reminded the guy that the car was lowered, and factory specs were not suitable and probably not attainable... he repeated "we align to factory specs"... so I hung up.

PS: On Detroit roads it doesn't matter what alignment you get... the pot holes will have it knocked out of alignment within a week or two.
