Well the service manager called back and did some digging. They claim they had the electronic angle finder (as I'm sure most shops due for driveline, etc) but they didn't have the mount. So he refunded my money because it wasn't done 100%. I appreciated that.


Let me know if you think the above is acceptable or not. If not, I'll take it somewhere else.

I'm no expert but the Toe results (F and R) look off....not sure what the allowable +/- is on these....maybe someone with more knowledge will chime in.

Had Texas Track Works in Fort Worth align mine. They have a tool to measure caster and can set everything exactly how you want it. Good group of guys.

Don’t let the stealership bs you about , it’s in an acceptable range either. If they know what they are doing, it should be exact. I am told that allot of the Lonestar club uses Firestone on North Preston. Apparently they have a guy who understands the track alignment for corvettes and porsche and is the only one who does it for the shop. Not sure about the c7 tool however.

I had Classic do mine on my 19Z last week when I was in for my 500 mile oil change.

They set the specs exactly where I wanted them(DSC Sport street settings), but I never got anything showing what they set the rear caster to. They assured me it was set though so I guess I have to trust them. The rest of the numbers were spot on so I dont doubt that they did it. Cost was $150.

+1 for Classic Chevrolet in Grapevine. Really stand up guys in my experience and they did my last alignment well. I forgot to ask for the before and after printout but the car handled very well and drove straight.
