Chicagoland alignment shop?

Can anybody recommend an alignment shop that can handle 35" tires? I stopped into a place in Elmhurst and they said their rack couldn't handle the Jeep.

I did the driveway-tape measure alignment a couple times after my 2.5" lift but it still wanders on the highway above like 60mph...kinda sick of it

And yes I have front and rear adjustable track bars and LCAs

2010 JKUR, TF 2.5", 35" MTZs, 5.38s

Great shop in Naperville is

Maximum Automotive
(630) 423-5813
1580 W Ogden Ave
Naperville, IL 60540

They specialize in lifted 4x4s. They balanced my lifted LJ (35s) and JK (37s) and did a fantastic job, quick and at a decent price

If you feel like driving out to the sticks.. There is a shop called 3D Auto in Cortland (out near DeKalb). Dan can handle alignments on large tire rigs. He is the only guy I go to.
