    Alignment Shops

    So now that I lowered my car and got new set of rims, I need to get alignment done on the front wheels. Where would you suggest to go for good laser alignment shop in Kitchener-Waterloo?

    P.S.: We should have a thread with a list of wheel alignment shops in tri-cities area stickied IMO. Searching for "alignment" brings up a lot of irrelevant threads.

    yeap...........Go see Derek at Beverly Tire. Hespler Road and Lang's Drive till him you are from GenerationDUb and thaat you need a FRONT WHEEL Alignment do not get a 4 wheel alignement as its not needed with the solid rear beam just because you lowered the car. unless you hit something really hard on the rears it should not have changed from factory because of lowering it...the fronts might have...worth the money to be sure! he did mine when i lowered my mkiv jetta and shop is low car friendly

    Oh yeah, I forgot. LOL

    P.S.: I still think mapping out alignment shops in the area is a good idea.

    Pretty sure the MKIV has rear adjustment and requires a 4 wheel alignment.

    PM me for details on another lowered car friendly alignment shop.

    working at a shop that does alignments - i've never seen a car need adjustments on the rear - usually the computer is set up to take the alignment from the rear tires and use that to base the alignment for the front tires....thats what was explained to me by our alignment guys..... unless its 4 wheel drive.....
