Alignment Shop in the East Bay

Any recommendations for an alignment shop that can do a track alignment for 2022 GR86? I'm in Oakland.

I see that this AVN Motorsports in Alameda has very positive online reviews.

Just had an alignment done on my slammed BRZ with all stock arms, at AR Tire in Fremont. Was in and out of there in far less than an hour. They got the values perfectly within specifications. Charged me $100 because they sent me a $20 off coupon through instagram.

I recommend Motorsport Techniques in Hayward.

Oh yes. It's in Fremont, not SJ. Here are my alignment specs!

Looks like kind of a crappy alignment to me.

It's slammed with no adjustment parts, set toe n go for $100 they did about what I expect, could have fiddled the extra hundredths of a degree a little more but for a car that's purely street driven it's not that important.


I've been going to auto innovations in Milpitas, not much more expensive, a little under an hour usually for alignment only, more if you do tires, nails desired specs (assuming the parts can do it), communicates what's going very well, torques everything tight enough that it doesn't slip. Call ahead, they're usually booked about a week out, if you need a specific time for your work/commute expect to need to schedule two weeks in advance.

Probably too far South for OP but oh well, gotta try Kraus, they're closer to me and have been around for decades.

Custom alignment in Mountain View is good, but pricey and they make you leave the car all day long.

Yeah, I didn't want them messing with my camber plates in the front (fitment bro, lol). For $100 and about 45 min of my time, I can't complain. Here's a photo of how she sits.

To close the loop here - I had an alignment done at AVN Motorsports in Alameda. They were very friendly and did a good job. They aren't experts in track set up but they will adjust the car to the specs you want. Shop is very clean and well run.
