I've been doing my alignments at Tire Outlet off Alum Rock the past couple years. They're known for alignment work on clublexus. Let them know Nick sent you

AutoRND is good, but they are not open on Saturdays unfortunately... unless by appointment but I think they are generally a M-F operation.

I used to take my MR2 to Motorsport Technique in Hayward... they were good guys but I've heard indirectly they've gone into decline or something. Not sure but it's an option.

alignment shop ?

You could always go to Elite Performance in Burlingame, I know a little further away from you, but they know their stuff

Go to trackspec in Fremont. You won't regret it. I take all of the cars that I care about there.

Custom Alignment in Mountain View, EDGE motorworks in MW and Dublin are my two favorites. But you are looking at a minimum of $200-$300 for close to 2 hours on the rack, test drive, tweak, test drive, etc.

Been using these guys... sheesh close to 15+ years.

FWIW - you don't know how messed up the stock alignment is until you get the car aligned. To this day I have no idea how the stock BRZ got the numbers it did.
