    Alignment Shop in PDX

    Looking for a good alignment shop in the Portland area.

    I know of The Line-Up Shop, but wasn't too happy with their service last time I went. They don't use digital stuff, so when I asked for a printout, they handed me a few numbers scribbled on a piece of torn off paper. Plus my steering wheel was a bit off center and the car pulled ever so slightly to one side.

    And don't tell me to "Just use a tape measure".

      Pretty sure they don't give print outs, but I do recommend them as he did great job on my car. If you're really dead set on gettin a print out though my brother in law brought his slammed s2k to the les Schwab off 192nd in camas. The guy who does it there drives a VIP'ed Lexus so he's lower car friendly.

                  Both BMW and MINI have BMW Kinematics so that's a plus. In ground if you're slammed. Sears auto in Vancouver is also low friendly. They do a lot of slammed cars and classic cars. The techs are all 20+ years there so don't let the sears name scare you!

                    toe plates and tape measures do work. If you have rear adjustments that's harder. In that case, I like Garth at AnT Tire/Trackside Motorsports on Interstate Ave. (503) 236-2106. Garth will give you printouts

                      I have brought alot of cars there, very old school, but cheap and honest. i took my e34 there at 10am, found out that my issue was i had the wrong control arms(PO put 7 series in) and i replaced and brought it back around 4pm, tony re did my alignment for free, and with the shorter control arms, it really need it.
                      All my cars track straight after, i cant say the same about Les Schwab.
                      Also their rack is setup to take stanced/hellaflush/not-drivable cars, so if your car is lowered at all not need to worry about how they will get it on the lift.
                      it took them about 30mins from start to finish.
