    Yes, it's still $60...was just there today. Nice guy, great work. In and out quickly. He's got a nice car too ;P

    Here were my results from the alignment:

    FRONT CAMBER
    RANGE = -1.7 - 0.3

    My car
    Front Left = -0.4 FINAL -0.5
    Front Right = -1.0 FINAL -1.1

    FRONT TOE
    RANGE -0.6mm - 1.7mm

    My Car
    Front Left Toe = -1.2mm FINAL 0.3
    Front Right Toe = 3.4mm FINAL 0.3

    REAR CAMBER
    RANGE = -2.3 - -0.3

    My Car
    Rear Left Camber = -1.4 FINAL -1.5
    Rear Right Camber = -0.4 FINAL -0.1

    REAR TOE
    RANGE -0.6mm - 1.7mm

    My Car
    Rear Left Toe = -0.6mm FINAL 1.2
    Rear Right Toe = 6.5mm FINAL 1.6

    He had a bit of trouble getting the rear right toe into spec, let alone in the middle. He thinks the PO may have hit that side against something or been hit on the right side.

    I'd recommend calling ahead to make sure they can fit you in but generally you should be fine if you just drive up. You might just have to wait for the car ahead of you (or two?).

    Went there yesterday for an alignment after being dropped on pro-kits, no camber kit $60 bucks. Don't have a print out to show cause they were out of ink but I can get one next week.

    Did a pretty good job, I think I was really out of spec cause I immediately felt a different afterwords. Took a little under 1/2 hour, good experience overall.

    Just got home from KSL Automotive for an alignment for $60 cash. Malik is good to deal with and gave me a printout of the alignment report and explained the minor misalignment with the front wheels. Probably stayed about 30mins or so. +1

    Just got back from KSL.

    My appointment was for 4:30 but I got stuck in traffic and didn't get there until 4:45pm. They were working on another car until 5pm. It took them about 30mins to get my car done. It was a lot quicker than I thought.
    They fixed my front right toe which was way off spec. Everything seems to be good now.

    I'm happy with the results and price. Good stuff!

    Service was fast, friendly and efficient! My car's been lowered for about 4 weeks now so I thought it was a good time to get my car aligned today. I was in the area so I walked in at 3:30pm to see if they could fit me in. Turns out they close at 4pm on Saturday's, but they fit me in for 4:30 ! I came back at 4:30 and they had my car up asap. They brought my car back within spec and told me I didn't need a camber kit yay! I'm running GP Racing Wheels GR-8 17x7 - ET45 on prokits. I paid 60 cash and it took them a little over 30 mins to adjust my car's alignment. I like how they have seats in front of your car so you can watch them work on it. It gave me peace of mind.

    I Definitely recommend this shop!

    from what I have read KSL does not like working on cars with camber kits. I would recommend making the drive west to Altech if you have a camber kit. They do exactly as you are asking Johny. They put your car on the laser alignment machine, get some readings, adjust the camber kit, re-measure, re-adjust, measure again to ensure it is withing spec.

    Went on the weekend for an alignment. I am still on stock suspension so it was pretty straight forward for them. In an out in under 45 min. $60 makes it all worth it. I will definitely be going back.

    Just got back from the shop.

    I dropped by without making an appointment, and he fit me in.

    It's $60 for toe adjustment on all 4 corners, and $20 for camber adjustment each side. Cost me $80 since only my front left camber needed adjusting via the stock camber bolt.

    Final results:
    -1.0 front left and right camber
    0mm front left and right toe
    -1.6 rear left camber
    -2.0 rear right camber
    0.3mm rear left and right toe

    Called Malik on Tuesday and went in that afternoon to get an alignment and my summer wheels/tires installed. Was running a little late so I called to make sure I was still ok and Malik said no worries. Dropped off my car and came back an hour later and the car was ready. Another happy TM3 customer.
