    good place for an alignment in Greensboro?

    Greetings Cackalackians, Anyone in Greensboro able to point me to a good place to get an alignment for a mini truck? Past experiences says not all shops are the same (including one that wanted an extra $40 because my OME torsion bars were a "five inch lift kit" :rolleyes: ) Thanks, Brian
