Default Alignment shop needed in south Melbourne

I just bought a 2002 G-force and would like to change the alignment a bit and take out some camber and put in a bit more caster. Anyone have any experience with a shop in the Moorabin airport area that is good with the Jag suspension on a Cobra?

Nathan is a nice guy. Although, the first/last time I used Advantage for my Cobra alignment whomever worked on my car didn't tighten up a number of nuts. Naturally, I wasn't impressed. If you use them, make sure to check everything is tight when you get the car back.

There is also Ralph at Trutrack Suspension in North Melbourne. They do a lot of race car alignments. Up that way is also Stuckey Tyres. Russell supplies tyres to a lot of race teams and I believe they do alignments there too.

I have heard really good things about the aligner at Bob Jane T Marts in Moorabbin. That's where I will be taking my car shortly.

Default Thanks for the information

Thank you for the suggestions. I think I will visit with each and see what kind of feeling I get talking to them and looking at the shops. Bob jane might get a nod as the inside edges of my front tires are worn from the current camber setting.

My car was a 2001 kit that was finished in 2002. It originally had a 351 in it burning bbq gas but it spit a piston and was replaced by the LS2 and 6 speed. It is painted a dark blue metallic with silver stripes and a light mocha/tan interior. It drives very nicely and has good performance. At 61k it is not a garage queen and well sorted. I hope to keep up that tradition!
