    So off road shops that do alignments are not prevalent around me and the guy I used to use retired and I need a alignment after I installed my level kit. I'm looking for the best national brand place that will give me the best alignment.

    Since you're not lifted- find a good dealer tech in your area.

    Some suspension tweaks
    Just give a local shop the alignment numbers you want and tell them "in the green" isn't good enough, you want it exactly as you give them. I've done it with my lifted and stock trucks.

    You don't need a 4 wheel shop. Just bring it to a good dealer tech.

    I ended up taking it to a local Toyota dealership, they where the only ones I could into today. I don't know anything about alignment but it looks like they got it back to factory spec according to the sheet they gave me. Hope it's good, if not I can take it back up to 8kfrom today, Even with a up coming 3k round trip west 8k will last me for a year.

    Hey Mike,

    Not sure if this is too far for you but I use to go to a place in Farmingdale, N.J. The Front End Shop. Guy was top notch and many folks, especially truck owners, went to him.

    Not sure on the distance for ya...

    If you find a guy at a Firestone location you like, as I have after trying 4 locations, you can purchase their lifetime alignment warranty for $180 i believe. no limit on how many times you go in as long as you own the truck
