I take my 3 to Firestone at Southtown. I bought the lifetime alignment which is great if you're going to keep the truck a while. I wouldn't let them try to talk you into anything else though as their rates seem steep. They wanted $14 to replace a side marker bulb. They also wanted $350 to replace a worn steering rack bushing. Part cost $17 from GM and took me about an hour to install. Stick strictly to the alignment, though, and I'd have no problem recommending them.

I have always used woodward tire on covington rd. . Locally family owned, they all work there. They will do odd vehicles with non stock suspensions. They won't warranty anything outside factory spec but if you have all of the proper parts they will set an alignment anywhere you want it.

Frankley though with a lifted big tire jeep some tape measures and or maybe some strings. Then some time.

I'd try it at home if possible. Save yourself the $50. There's not much that's adjustable aside from toe in/out anyway.

I need to relocate my hole for my track bar so the axel lines up under the jeep.
