    Default Need help: Mechanic/shop recommendations in downtown Toronto for lowered car

    Hi, does anyone have a good shop or mechanic they can recommend in downtown Toronto that won't have a problem with lowered cars? I've booked an appointment with a downtown shop, but when I showed up, they did not want to work on my car because it's lowered. I am past due for service and need to get my shocks/struts replaced, so I don't want to risk messing something by driving too far. Thank you for the help.

    If you don't mind driving a bit west to Etobicoke. Altech has done many lowered cars for service and especially alignments. They're on Kipling just north of The Queensway. Both Jim and Pat have worked on my past lowered cars and have recently done an alignment on my lowered BRZ.

    Hi guys, thank you for the replies. Sorry for the delayed response, just checking the thread now. I ended up going to Jimmy Street Performance Markham. Can't go wrong with Jimmy, great work as always. Only issue is Markham is a little far for me, I'll check the shops you recommended as they're closer.

    Lol that's why I recommend Altech. You said downtown Toronto. They're just north of the Queensway off of Kipling. No doubt Jimmy is great he's done work on 3 of my previous cars.
