Default Flush bay alignment rack anywhere in Va

So, alignments.

It seems like any where in Roanoke will not take my car on their alignment rack because my car is "low" Okay, my car is only a finger gap all around and even offered to remove my front bumper prior before getting it on a rack, then they made a excuse of my side skirts. I had enough and some shops I took it to did not align my car properly because of my specific specs as far as camber angles and does not drive straight still.

So, I need a good shop that know their stuff around full coilover set up with built in camber plates and bolts to my specs for track. Also a flush/flat rack to save me the hassle. I'm willing to travel any where in Va to have it done.

Any suggested shops? Sorry, my grammer is not perfect. English is my 2nd language.

Getting a printout is far less important than getting a quality alignment. You can align a car perfectly with strings and other fixtures (most racecars past the weekend amateur level don't go to an alignment shop with computerized readouts), and there isn't any way to connect a printer to a piece of string.

If grkguy89 doesn't work out, I know here in VA Beach area of a couple places that could get an alignment done. Keenan over at All Aspects in Chesapeake has been able to get my car on their rack all 3 times I've brought it there and he's done custom specs with my camber plates and crash bolts. Also Bert's Alignment in VA Beach I believe has a ground level alignment rack, as does Mizelle's in Norfolk. Mizelle's is the cheapest that I've been to and bring most of my cars there, but the MR2 always goes to Keenan.

They are definitely old school, but they do it right. I've had them do some pretty involved stuff, beyond the realm of your standard alignment...haha.
