Default Seattle area alignment shop

I'm wrapping up the installation of a fully adjustable UMI front control arms. Can anyone recommend a good alignment shop? I'm reluctant to bring it to a standard Les Schwab/Big O Tire type place.

A friend of mine referred me to Tru-Line in Bellevue. I have an appointment, so I'll update this thread afterward.

Omni brake and alignment in Kirkland recommended by Ellis (Speed Secrets in Monroe). They're awesome, I have over 13,000 miles on my R888's and they still have plenty of tread. Car tracks dead straight.

Thank you.

Does your vehicle have adjustable control arms? The thing that concerns me a bit is the fact that the arms have to come off for proper adjustment.

The local Big O Tire couldn't handle swapping tie-rod ends properly. I brought them a set of tie rod ends that had a hole for a cotter pin and castle nuts. The put the new ends on an re-used the crappy lock nuts from the old set. If they can't keep that straight, I don't want to turn them loose on this work!

I do have adjustable control arms and (at the time) an adjustable panhard. Both were on-car adjustable and they had no problem adjusting those as well as part of the alignment.

Tru-Line did a great job. I've been there twice now, and I am very happy with their work.
