Recently went to coils in my R32 and can tell the toe is out as well as the camber (obvious with the tire wear), I've been trying to find a shop that I can trust to do the alignment. The majority of the places I have checked so far have told me they might not be able to adjust the toe/camber correctly with the alignment racks they have, and don't want to touch it. The car is lowered maybe and inch or and inch and a half from stock.
Has anyone had good experiences with getting an alignment with their cars after lowering?

Dales auto service in Langley does great work and will have no problem working on lowered cars.

turn3 in langley. Jeff knows his stuff. I've been very happy with the alignment he put on my M3. He was planning to do my R32 as well but I sold it before I could get out to him.

Pricing is fair, and well explained

Just got my car back from Dales.

No complaints.   Other than mixing my car up with the black MK3 with the kinetic 2.0 kit ( I think ) on it.   But they are both black with an FMIC hanging out front, so I could see the confusion.

Gonna have to be Dale's.  I've been going to them for 15 years now and they have always done a great job.  They know their stuff and have all the latest alignment machines to help you nail down the best alignment for you, not necessarily just putting it at factory spec and sending it on its way.  They have done multiple alignments on my previous R32s and the handling before and after was always such an improvement.

Dale's 604.530.9160

I've been going there for 25 years. Always treated right and if your vehicle is lowered (or raised), they have experience with it all. They helped me get the best performance out of all my suspension upgrades, not just drive straight.

You got me beat old timer ;)  You would have been dealing directly with Dale when you first started going there.
