Default Alignment after Bilsteins...Can't give me a price??

I'm having a set of Bilsteins installed on Monday so I called a local STS tire to arrange an appointment for an alignment. The owner wanted to know why I wanted an alignment done on a '12 truck and I told him about the installation of the Bilsteins. His reply was that not only do I have to bring him the specs but that it is "first come first serve, you might be able to wait for it or you might not". Ok.....how much will it be? "Time and material, I can't give you price".....

Does that sound right to anybody? Maybe the guy was a former doctor who was used to working with Medicare?

Sounds like a place to stay FAR, FAR, AWAY from! I got mine done at Firestone with a Lifetime warranty so no matter what I do it is free even if I change out tires, rims, or lifts....It was $150. Plus I'm in the military so not matter where I go, as long as there is a Firestone it will be covered for FREEEEE!

I got the sense that he was "insulted" being asked to do a wheel alignment when another shop was doing the actual installation of the shocks. The funny thing is that I used the shop recently to get new tires for my CJ and I thought they were very customer service oriented.....I guess everyone has a bad day.

The alignment needs to be done to factory specs and should be under $100.00

Mine was done no questions asked and came out perfect.

I installed my Bilstein shocks last week, put them at 2.1 and had it an alignment today and it was $60, and no questions asked.

Exactly what he said.
Alignments are typically a flat rated fee
