Default Alignment shop

Hello, this is my first post on the forum. I have a 2013 Mustang that I will be lowering sometime this summer. I am looking for a good place to get it aligned afterwards. I'm looking for a shop from Indy to Louisville. Thanks for any info.

95% of the tire shops can do this for you.

if you stick with OEM strut mounts the only thing that can be adjusted is toe. from my research that is perfectly ok. you will likely have some negative camber but that is a good thing in my book. i run -1.5 degrees myself. as long as your toe is set properly you will be fine.

if you get aftermarket adjustable caster/camber mounts then you want to find a place that is comfortable working with aftermarket suspension components. that kind be tougher but just call around.

if you buy an adjustable panhard bar, like you should, it will be even more difficult to find someone who will do that for you. (if you can't/won't do it yourself). if you only have 8" wide wheels you may not notice any shift in your rear axle. however, i just bought 9" wheels with 32mm offset and i can tell the axle has shifted to the left.

my steeda adj bar was installed by brenspeed with some blue loctite on the right lock nut. i tried to get under the car to adjust it but i can't get at it. probably heading back to them to get it centered cause no one with a lift (a shop) wants to touch it.

and apparently a panhard adjustment is not generally included in a 4-wheel alignment.
