Where can I get a lifetime alignment ?

Yeah as title says Where can I get a lifetime alignment ? I thought NTB did it but they sell 1,3, and 5 year alignments. Is there anywhere that does life time alignments.

Yea anywhere offering the lifetime alignment deal will also give it to if ur truck is lifted but they wont do it for the lowered trucks cuz they'd lose a lot of money cuz of ppl like me i'd be hitting it up like every month or every bad pothole I hit.

thats not the only reason....
1. Most lowered trucks are half assed ...cut frames ..bad welds allover the place.. that can sometime make it impossible to get in to specs..
2. If they are too low the frame will hit the rack...so you cant drive it up on the rack to do the alignment
3. depends on how good the alignment tech is..most are scared of lowered truck and cars cuase the dont know how to keep them from wearing tires and how to get max adjustment to put them in specs


Yes they will do lifted trucks ...If they know what they are doing!!!!
Ill do them all day if i can get them on the rack! ..

Firestone sells them for 169.99 (prices are different here 139.99 or 119.99 depending on a sale or not)
aslong as you own the vehicle ...as often as you need ...nation wide ... any Firestone ...awsome deal! ..not just saying that cause i work there! if you find another Nation wide company that offers the lifetime alignment cheaper Firestone will meet or beat the price...

Dang that sounds really good.

So if I go out and go four wheeling, and in a few months my alignment is out again, I just drive in there, show them my receipt or whatever, they do it for free? Like, totally free?

And they're not gonna be gay and say "Oh well you need a new xxxxx"

*cough JUST BRAKES cough*

Alright Mr. Firestone :), Lets say I buy the MasterCareŽ Premium Alignment, will they re-balance a set of wheels that I had put on after the initial alignment, another set of wheels?

the best thing about firestone's lifetime alignment is that it includes the camber kit...

which is something that i needed, after going to 32x11.50's... and cranking my t-bars...

so, the alignment alone, is a great deal.. plus the cam kit? sweet deal...

No one down here will honor the lifetime alignment because I have "altered suspension." But, usually Firestone will otherwise.

I paid 90 some dollars for my lifetime alignment when I bought my tires from Firestone. Worth every penny IMO.

its FREE.... unless you need parts
yes,you can take it back as often as you feel needed!

as far as the balance goes, it all depends on who you talk to and how good you know them...hehe..


Cams only come with the alignment ,at some stores, if they do it is full price 169.99

Well if you think about it...just to have an alignment once it is about $70 (At Firestone)...if you were to do 2 alignments with them...you have paid the lifetime one off. I do an alignment every 6 months w/ tire rotation (All free) so it ends up being VERY worth it. They (Firestone) also do very good alignments IMO...since I bought the truck the dealer would do the alignments (They charged about 35 bucks for an alignment) and I was never happy...it never seemed to be 100% on..steering wheel would be center but it would either be going to the left or right and for the truck to go straight you would have to have the wheel turned to the left a little.

When I got my Duelers and got the alignment w/ them, it's been great...straight forward is straight forward.

I have been thinking about getting it for the Marquis, that thing needs an alignment really bad.

Again, worth it IMO.
