Anyone have a recommendation for performance shops that can do a good alignment? I'm aware of Togue Factory but looking for other options since they are a bit far from me and not open on weekends.

Firestone is your best bet. Lifetime alignments for around $120. Sometimes they get weird about doing it if you have aftermarket wheels,at least the one here in Schaumburg does.

It's $200 actually, but it's pretty worth. It lasts the life of your vehicle.

On another note, any meets happening this weekend in the suburbs?

Yeah,I figured the price went up from last time I saw,which was at least four years ago,but damn,that's a pretty steep increase.

I know a guy in Lake County, Wisconsin. He is very good and does alignment and corner balancing, he workes on my NSX and I am very happy with how the car behaves during track days.

I took your advice and was up to see Justin on Wednesday. I installed new suspension last week. Did corner balance and alignment. so far the car handles great. Will be at the track in a couple weeks to really know how it is. Very reasonably priced compared to the Chicago area shops too.

Anyone has a set of OEM wheels and tires laying around? Tires have to be new or like new since I need tires.

Hi guys, I know this is for Chicago, but we had quite a few guys from IL who came to this last year. This will be the 2nd annual All Toyotas of the Midwest show, and will be held on Sunday July 16 in Novi, Michigan. Lot of things lined up for the show, music, go-karting, freebies, awards and charity raffle with proceeds to benefit 4 Paws for Ability who trains & displaces service dogs to families of disabled veterans and children all over the country. Online registration is open. Please visit www.atomcarshow.org/2017-show.html for more details. Hope to see some of you guys there!

Gauging interest. May have to sell my 2013 FR-S. Asphalt with 31,xxx miles. Injen short ram intake, shorty antenna, tinted rear tail light covers. Had Simoniz Glasscoat applied when I bought it new, so the paint still looks new. And a Spec D dual exhaust I never installed. Well maintained, all scheduled maintenance done regularly at dealer. Asking 15k. Decided to post here first before I put it on the for sale forum. I live by Chicago Ridge Mall in Oak Lawn. Let me know if you're interested or if you know anyone interested. Thanks.
