Alignment shops in CT

Looking for a quality alignment shop in the greater Hartford area, I need to see if my axles are square after replacing all of my control arms, any suggestions?

Someone I work with said the Goodyear in Wethersfield will give you a read out for free, going to check them out

M&M Auto in Simsbury wanted $150 for an alignment with adjustable CAs...

That's all I want, a read out. They tell me if cant be done because Im not stock. Freakin idiots. But that's good if they will and know how to do a full alignment including axles.
How far is Endangered species from you ?

Olanders in Vernon were the only ones I could find that would do it with my lift & tires. I've been a few times & would go back.

How much did it run you? What do they charge for a check?

Just called them, $89.99 for a full alignment (squaring axles, toe-in, etc) and $30 if you just want it to be checked, they said they've dealt a lot with lifted wranglers

I hope to make it to the Goodyear in Wethersfield with my Jeep next week and see if they give me hassle about the lift and tires...

Just stopped by the Goodyear in Wethersfield today. I didn't mention anything about my jeep being non-stock, set up the free alignment and waited for them to say something. Surprisingly they said they'd give me an alignment if I told them what specs I wanted but it would be a "specialized" alignment at $115 vs their standard $85 since the jeep is modified.

My big reason for the alignment is to make sure my thrust angle is good and axles are square, turns out they aren't. The tech didn't seem to understand what I was looking for so I turned down the alignment, they even offered to do it for $75 since it was already on the ramp but I still said no

I've heard good things about Strong's Alignment in East Hartford. Several people have told me that they do good alignments for 4x4s and are only 75 bucks.

I wanted to check out strong's shop but his hours just don't cut it for me. I'm going with M&M Auto in Avon tomorrow. They're open slightly later but they're a little closer so it works better for me and my work schedule. They have a "jeep" guy there called Ryan, I spoke with him and he's worked on a bunch of jeeps and seems to know his stuff, we'll find out within the week if this is true
