Any good Alignment shops in the Bay Area?
 
Looking for a reputable alignment shop to go to around the Bay Area. Any recommendations based off experience or price points?

A lot of people say this is the best shop in town. I frankly can't tell the difference, but go there anyway since price seems not out of whack:

Awesome. Thank you. Looks like I'll most likely be going to Custom Alignment.

Please report back. It's been years and I forgot how much I paid.

Still haven't gone yet due to appointment scheduling on my end but, was quoted $260 which is the lowest by far out of all the places I've contacted.

Holy moly, that's expensive! First post here, P-car owner only since Oct 2015 but have had many alignments in the Bay Area on various track & street cars. Best alignment experience I've had was at TFB in Sonoma (by the raceway). It was my notoriously difficult to align turbo Miata but I think they do P-cars, too. If memory serves, it was about $125 and that was 18 months ago.

I go to a one-man shop local to me and he now charges a whopping $100 (just got my Cayman S aligned there a few weeks ago). The shop is Alignment Services in Walnut Creek and Chris, the owner, has always done whatever I've asked on my street cars to track/race cars. I also always have him mount & balance tires for me, direct shipped from TireRack.

Just another couple of options to consider :cool:

$100 is abt right. All the shops I go to can't get the steering wheel centered. Alignment is good but wheel is slightly off.

I had the same issue with two shops not being able to get the steering wheel centered. They gave me my money back and custom alignment in mountain view finally got it right. Pricey, but I got my money's worth. If track fanatics from out of state ship their cars to them, they gotta be pretty good.

Good to know

BR Racing in Los Gatos or Custom Alignment in Mountain View are great.
