I thought it was pretty easy to do. I didn't go with the ultimate kit, but same steps.

I also didn't use the ramp trick instead just jacking up one side of the axle . It worked out just as good, I think.

I called up my local tire shop (Town Fair Tire) and they said they wont touch any tires and wheels that were bought off-line. The rep i spoke to said that theyve had experiences of people bringing in their cars with "their wheels literally falling off as they were coming in". I was going to lose my cool, but decided to just say "ok, thank you" and then hung up.

Any suggestions for shops that will do an alignment and wont have a problem touching aftermarket wheels and tires? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated

Olenders Automotive
I'm from the Hartford area so Vernon isnt too far of a trip. I might look into going there.

Peepers Are you buying the wheels with the tires already mounted and ballenced?

If they are, just drive to the shop on your old stock tires, and see if they will do an alignment then. Then when you get home, put on the new tires. You could also bring the tires and say a friend just bought the tires and ask if they could check the balence on them. then swap them out when you get home.

Jeeplover1 There has to be an off road shop somewhere in your area.. Or try a place that dont just sell tires like a mechanic.. Also there is ways you can measure the toe in yourself
