Re: WK alignment issues after 2" lift kit install

I had mine done at the dealer for $75. No hassles, so far, so good. I was told to go there by another allignment shop that services my work fleet. He said they are probably the only ones with the correct software and default specs.

Find another shop. And yes do not need to replace ball joints. My GC is OME 3" and there was no problem with allignment.

ok thats good news to hear... thanks for that input Kreso

i am gonna go to my local mechanic that my family has used for years now. he told me it would take about an hour - hour and half and cost about $100.

the shop i went to for my first alignment took about 20-25mins and charged me $60 to do it... that could explain why my car is out of spec.

Just the going rate in town I suppose. I was back in a month later to get my leaking transmission cooler lines replaced for $220.
