Not in joliets back yard but 20-30 minuets away. It's a shop called frame tech and it's in tinley park. They do great work and have been for years, bring cash tho it's old school.

FWIW I brought my car to the Merlins on Rt30 in plainfield. The guys that work there are pretty wise about adjustable suspension stuff and the guy that did my alignment drag races and had a 10 second Chevelle. I think it was $80 to do the alignment.

I called frame tech and they were not very accommodating. They answer the phone "hello" which threw me off, I'm like is this frame tech? But whatever, asked about an alignment and he said drop it off tomorrow and we should get to it. I said I'm driving about 40min and I would rather wait for my car (not many shops I would leave my car with anyway unattended). He says okay but it will probably be about a 5 hour response, "okay by."

Called another shop recommended by a member in yorkville "Wholesale tire" and they were very nice. They got me an appointment for next week and said it should only take an hour.

Edit: Wholesale tire are great people to deal with. Literally a mom and pop shop since 1984.
