That tends to be everyone's go to in the South Bay and I have heard really good things about them. I had unfortunately a VERY different experience when I went there. Just scroll down to the link if you don't want the story as to why....
They charged me I think like $180 and took over an hour to basically tell me my car was garbage and that my frame was out of spec and that my car literally could not be aligned. On top of it their tech was an complete $%^wad and acted like I was putting him out to even ask why exactly my car was such an abomination.
I (very dejected) went home with my tail between my legs wondering if they were right and I had somehow spent at this point nearly 2 years working on a car that was "ruined." Spent about 4 days kind of depressed and not sure what to do..... then I remembered. This ain't my first mother$#%^ rodeo. I grabbed every plumb bob, laser line, and bubble level I own, and ordered a few more. I already did this when I first bought the car. Before and after installing the new floor pans and all the other structural metal. And used a porta-power to get it VERY square. But this time I went kinda nuts....... and checked every known point I possibly could.
To put it bluntly, they were full of it. Even measuring diagonally my car was WELL within the specs of the original drawings and from data I got from measuring friend's cars. (I even measured one in the Home Depot parking lot in Torrance) the guy thought I was a nutcase as I pulled in behind him with a tape measure in hand.
I then set out to find a place that worked on old cars and found https://www.yelp.com/biz/lees-alignm...ervice-gardena
Made an appointment and brought them the car, told them nothing of the last place and asked them to spend a day on it. I literally paid them for the day, and only spoke to the lady at the counter. Wanted a completely independent diag from them.
Why? I built the car entirely on my own, every nut every bolt, every torque setting etc.. So I wanted an extra set of eyes just to make sure I hadn't left something loose or done something wrong. The called me at the end of the day and I came back to like 4 techs in their mid-20's with big grins on their faces. The son of the owner and the head tech pointed to my car as I walked up "this one yours?" Yup, I said. Were you able to make it work out with the shims etc? "Sure did, and we got all that extra castor you asked for as well, btw this thing handles like a modern one now."
We then proceeded to spend the next hour or so just chit chatting under my car and walking around their little shop looking at other customers cars and what the plans were etc.. Shook hands, paid my bill. And drove my car for real for the first time. Since then, I've spent a lot of time in that car out in the canyons and since done several safety checks and tweaks since. All of which I have done with the help of the folks at Lee's and it never fails to shock me with it's grip.
Johnsons has a really good rep, most of my buddies are 911 guys both modern and vintage. And most of them were really surprised to hear of my experience there. Maybe I got a bad tech, maybe there was an honest mistake in how the car was measured.
All I know is my wheel could fall off in front of their shop and I wouldn't so much as ask them to borrow a lug wrench.
