Does anyone know who does alignments in the area that will do things like negative camber, etc.?  Most shops that warranty their work will only do OEM spec.  The closer to Pickerington the better but I'm interested in hearing of others that may be in the area.

TIA

The Northend Wrench,  4330 Indianola Ave. Mark is the service writer,  Dave is the owner, Sean is the lead tech. They will work with you on your specs. 614-263-4978. Tell them Rich sent you.

 I used to have great luck with the Discount Tire on 256. I'd give them my desired and they'd say "no problem" and give me the exact specs I wanted, however last year they got a new manager who told me they would "set it to within the factory tolerances only". I told him that they've always done custom alignments for me, that I didn't care about any "warranty" and that if they weren't willing to do it any longer I'd find someone else who would.

He finally said he would do the custom alignment, but I made sure to tell him I wanted the spec sheet when they were done. They did exactly what I wanted, my only complaint with them is that the last two times I've had them mount my directional tires they've mounted them all the same direction. They also looked at me like I was crazy when I took my wheels in to get the flipped on the rim. Had to explain 3 times to the service writer what I wanted them to do.


If you are willing to drive a ways, Z.B. Lorenc, an OVR Member and former head of the Rallycross program owns Sigma Tec Automotive in Hilliard. I've heard he does great work. I'll probably hit him up next time I need an alignment.

OK, thanks all.  That gives me some leads.  I'll have to see what I can wrangle up before the last run of the season.

Tire Discounters in Heath did our alignment on our Chumpcar, as well as fixing my tire last Saturday. Talk to Patrick and I'm sure he can get you taken care of.

I use Good Year in Powell.  They align to my specs and provide the print out.  I also get the 3 year up to 6 alignment checks/adjustments deal for something like $180.  I normally get the alignment checked in Spring and before Nats or in the fall if I don't do Nats.  You can also transfer the alignment to another vehicle one time which works great with my car ADD.  They also were willing to cut the front bar of the Miata and install the Karcepts bar which was pretty cool.

Unless I feel like doing my alignment, this is the 1st place I'd go to
