Where to get an Alignment?

Does your Mitsubishi L300 make a strange noise? Need wheel alignment specs?

Where to get an Alignment?

Post by Lordsxo »

So I need a front wheel alignment for my 97 StarWagon. I asked around a couple of dedicated Tire Shops that just do Tires, Wheels, and alignments, and with offering all the specs, they all passed. I know Canadian Tire won't touch these, I haven't asked Midas yet. I'm going to start asking independents now to see if I can find any.

To save time, does anyone know of any garage in the Kitchener, Waterloo, or Cambridge area (Ontario) that would do an alignment? I think that I'll even drive to London or Hamilton and anywhere in between.

Thanks for any help

For anyone curious, none of the wheel shops were interested in completing an alignment, not in their system was the main reason. One place did refer me to one place. The shop specializes in Classic, Muscle Cars/Hot Rods, I took the van in and I had the newest vehicle there. So look for classic car shops.

Give Minit-Tune, by Granville Island a call. They changed the rotors on my L300 and I was happy with them. I don't know if they do alignments, but they worked on a Delica. See what they say.

It's odd to consider a franchise service centre for a JDM, but these guys are really trying to be good. And reasonably priced, too.

Oh, another place I had some work done is Fiji Island Auto Repair. Guy from Fiji. obviously, and remembers Delicas from back home. Down to Earth and common sense. Clean and high-tech garage, but knows when to be grassroots, when appropriate.

I like Mike now at Grip tires and Alignment in Port Moody. 604 461 2345
2625 St Johns Po Mo. He's done my alignment a few times after ball joint etc. changes.
He used to own port moody alignment till they tore down his shop to build a highrise. i haven't used him since his move to Grip but expect he still does a good job.
enjoy

Try the guys at Pacific Alignment - 1104 Clark Dr, Vancouver
Two thumbs up from me.
Not sure if they have done a Delica - call them and ask.
I have them do all my cars - Land Rover Defender, Audi, Chevy Silverado and my friends all take their assortment of cars, new and old there. They have even done my ATV after I replaced some steering parts. Small shop tucked in the back. I've found them honest, and straight up to to deal with.

Oops....sorry Lordsxo....I see now that you are in Toronto.
I guess you don't want to drive all this way for an alignment.....
