Can anyone recommend a good shop in The Fairfax County area?

Recently purchased my second Jeep (2011 JK). Can anyone make a recommendation on a reputable jeep svc shop in the Fairfax County Virginia area? Long story short - I brought the jeep back to the dealership where I bought it 3 times for what I thought was an alignment issue. They straightened her out (at least they said they did) and charged me 100.00 to boot. I've gone so far as to buy 4 new tires as well. Well, as it turns out, she still pulls to the right and im at my wits end with this thing. Im convinced theres a steering issue somewhere. Even on flat surfaces she'll wander left or right and im forced to straighten out. I'd like to have someone take a look rather than fight it out with the svc dept at Fair Oaks Jeep.

Also, for what its worth, theres s slight 'clicking' in the steering around the 10 or 11 oclock position. Perhaps unrelated, but maybe not.


Thanks gang!

Do you have a lift kit? I do know after I installed my teraflex 2.5" lift mine pulls to the right. From the research I've done everybody says to get an adjustable track bar to re-center the axle.

@Reaper: No sir, no lift kit. Stock suspension. Its odd because it seems the alignment itself is straight but the wheels are off-center (if thats possible). When driving on a flat surface, the steering wheel points toward 10 oclock.

Are you having any esp issues? I know you can adjust the drag link to center your steering wheel. Youtube how to center my jku steering wheel and that should help for that issue. As for the pulling is it possible you have an under inflated tire on the side its pulling to?
