Who do you use for alignment?

I'm out here in the IE (Redlands), I'm curious who you guys use to do your alignments out here? I'd like to get a full alignment done so I can get everything set (including caster) and know exactly where I'm at with my new front control arms that will be going on tomorrow. I'd really prefer someone who knows jeeps. Thanks in advance.

Thanks Kraig. Ill check them out. I know ORW has a full alignment rack but I don't really wanna drive to temecula. I normally would do it myself too but considering that I just did all new control arms and all that, I'd like to just get it dialed in and then get a printout of where I'm at. Drove it tonight though and it drives better than it ever has IMO. And I'm 99% sure the DW is gone!!

DIY. There are write-ups here and you'll find it easy. If you lived closer I'd show you. There is nothing an alignment shop can do with a solid axle that you can't do yourself with a tape and angle finder (about five bucks at HF for the both).

Aldo... let me know if I can help you.

Yeah, I'm not afraid to do it myself. But since I just resolved my DW issues and did new front control arms I'm just gonna have it aligned once and get the specs so I know where I'm at and can tweak it from there if I need to.

Post Tape measure

I just use a tape measure to check and adjust the toe-in. I try to set about 1/8" toe-in. That is the front being about 1/8" less than the rear.
