At least alignment shops around my area do.
Ok thanks

I go over bumps and pot holes plenty fast. I even hit dips at speed and use the bumpstops for what they're designed to do. I often jump curbs too.

My alignment hasn't moved one bit in years, unless I did something deliberate to change it.

Neil F. How are you verifying it is out of alignment? The only alignment to set is the Toe. You can do that yourself very easly.

You slammed into a curb no too long ago.
