    Forgot to ask. Is it $60 for a 2 wheel or 4 wheel alignment? If it's 4 wheel, it definitely a good price.

    cy88, if you do go, let him know the specs you want before he starts working.
    Hope he works out for you.

    Thanks for the heads up. Being a noob in cars, is there any resource I can find the "recommended specs" for a msp3?

    If this car is mainly a daily driver,
    make sure the toe is 0 all the way around.
    Camber wise, I'll let Fobio or another MS3 driver fill you in since I've a regular 3.

    I have no camber kits, so "stock" alignment all around.

    does anyone know how long I should wait with springs before getting an allignment? Should I go in right away or give it a week or two so the springs can settle?

    Getting my springs put on Saturday and since I will be in the Markham area wanted to get them done at KSL right after the spring install, but worried that it might be to early?

    Thanks!

    wait 2-3 weeks for thew springs to settle then do your alignment.

    if you have a camber kit i'd go somewhere else

    first page, post 14.

    i would rather go to a place that has worked on a few 3's with a camber kit. he has only dealt with mine.

    and i think the price he would charge for the alignment with camber kit is 90 or 100 i cant remember. but def not the price i paid.

    otherwise if its a standard alignment with no camber kit it;s a good deal

    Ohh... Alright.
    I went there the other day because of convenience close to my work. To me, he knew what he was doing (probably cause he learned on your car) I was in and out in about 30 minutes.

    I asked for my rear camber to be 1.5 as well, and he got it to 1.4 and 1.3 i believe (have to look at my sheet). i was in a rush, so i said as long as it's close i'm ok. i'm not gonna cry about 0.1 and 0.2 degrees.

    everything else was in middle of the spec range and overall i'm pretty happy with the work. got rid of a nasty vibration i've had since putting in the springs/camber kit

    Default Re: K.S.L. Automotive (Alignment in Markham)

    Just got back from KSL for an alignment as well as rebalancing my winter tires/rims. When I arrived he asked me if I had a camber kit to which I said no. In just over and hr, I got my car back.

    Here's my results:

    FRONT CAMBER
    RANGE = -1.7 - 0.3

    My car
    Front Left = -0.8 FINAL -0.8
    Front Right = -0.9 FINAL -0.9

    FRONT TOE
    RANGE -0.6mm - 1.7mm

    My Car
    Front Left Toe = 2.5mm FINAL 0.6
    Front Right Toe = 2.8.mm FINAL 0.6

    REAR CAMBER
    RANGE = -2.3 - -0.3

    My Car
    Rear Left Camber = -1.3 FINAL -1.5
    Rear Right Camber = -1.7 FINAL -1.9

    REAR TOE
    RANGE -0.6mm - 1.7mm

    My Car
    Front Left Toe = -0.9mm FINAL 0.6
    Front Right Toe = 0.6.mm FINAL 0.6

    Other than the Front Toe (damn roads) which was way off, the others are within specs.
    As Omalak stated the $60 alignment is their regular price and not a special for members.
    The rebalancing of the wheels were also done bringing the total to just over $110 before taxes.
    Not bad imho since I've been told that some members were quoted $80 for rebalancing at other places.
    Since this is my first time getting an alignment done by an independant shop instead of the dealer, I would have to say that I'm satisfied with the work done by KSL.

    Again, when I went there for my alignment (with camber kits) he charged me 100 flat and took 1hr. I was happy with the final numbers as well. He set it to the values I had asked for.

    went to KSL auto couple weeks back. Overall it was a pretty good exp, Malik was pretty friendly, lets you watch while he does it, and talks to you. Charges $60 cash i think with no camber kit. Guy also has a really nice 350Z.

    Here were my results from the alignment:

    FRONT CAMBER
    RANGE = -1.8 - 0.2

    My car
    Front Left = -0.7 FINAL -0.8
    Front Right = -1.1 FINAL -1.1

    FRONT TOE
    RANGE -0.6mm - 1.9mm

    My Car
    Front Left Toe = -5.9mm FINAL 0.6
    Front Right Toe = 1.9mm FINAL 0.6

    REAR CAMBER
    RANGE = -1.5 - 0.5

    My Car
    Rear Left Camber = -0.5 FINAL -0.5
    Rear Right Camber = -0.5 FINAL -0.7

    REAR TOE
    RANGE -0.6mm - 1.9mm

    My Car
    Rear Left Toe = 1.6mm FINAL 0.6
    Rear Right Toe = 0.6mm FINAL 0.6

    I just got back from doing my alignment with KSL. Malik was very helpful (and patient with my stupid alignment questions). He explained what the readouts meant, etc.

    On the way home, the car was driving straight and true (aside from being pushed heavily by the wind.)

    Props to Malik for a job well-done (not to mention great pricing).

    Thumbs down to the Enterprise guys next door though who wouldn't let me park in their lot (after I backed the car out of the bay) for the 30 seconds it took to hand Malik the cash. Jerks.
    There is a theory which states that a billion monkeys pounding on a billion keyboards will eventually produce the works of Shakespeare.

    Thanks to the Internet, we now know this theory is wrong.
