VEGAS- Need alignment

I plan on installing my APEX springs in a few days. Where is a good place to get the alignment done after install?

Dealership, take them the specs you want them to line up for your driving style.

There are some other threads out there that show the specs for each scenario. Do a search for more info. on alignment.

I say dealership because they have the right equipment for the Camaro to do a proper alignment. Don't forget to time the bushings.

What does "time the bushings" mean? And will the dealership do that also?

When installing the lower springs, one should loosen all the bolts on the suspension that is used for alignment. Put the car on the ground and bounce all 4 corners to settle the car into all the bushings. That is a simple explanation. Yes the dealership can do this too. If they know about it.

For me I just had the dealership do the springs, timing of the bushings and the alignment all in one shot. This way I knew it was all done correctly and done.

Could I have done the springs, sure, but I didn't need to then take it in for the alignment and be told someone installed the springs wring, or some other issue, and then spend almost as much to get that fixed too.
