There is a lot to alignment (one could watch a YouTube, at least I found it interesting). Again what I learned through my "lifetime" alignment. The first is a real alignment, subsequent ones are not.I have tried two places that “only install” and have been burned. Going somewhere else for alignment and suspension work if needed is quite a hassle.
I use a “tire” shop the does alignment for $40(half) when buying tires and is competent at brakes, oil, suspension and not into recommending excess auto repairs. The owner is wealthy from his property($35 million) from former locations so is not into overcharging for his work.
No idea why he does not sell his current location which is large parcel near a downtown thriving area.
I took my car into the BMW dealer for an alignment, and at the time it was $150. Every single value was in the green. At the same time, every single value was set to the middle of the range. And I hear they weight the driver seat. In other words, they set the values to the optimium values, not simply leave it as is because it's already in the green. Breaking the rear brake sensor wire when I had installed it only one week prior, then denying they did it? That was free of charge! (note to self: BBB is my friend)
