Good alignment shop in Denver?

Putting in new Global West suspension on my 68. Anyone know of a good reliable alignment shop in the Denver area? Thanks in advance...

Sweet ride. Been away from there for awhile but I used a fFirestone shop off 104th and Huron in Northglenn. Don't know if it's still open. What did you put in the back to raise it like that?

Nice ride. You got a trailer hitch on that to pull the boat?

Re: Good alignment shop in Denver?

Shawn, thanks. I will try to checkout the shop and hopefully hookup. I am still a few weeks from finishing the project. Regarding the backend, the pics show the old setup/suspension. It had airshocks in the back which are coming off as we speak. It may look good, but the ride was horrible, and I mean horrible. I hate those things so bad that I am considering putting bullet holes in them when the come off.

I just bought a 223 and 250 rounds, we could put a few holes in them. Love the picture with the boat. Do you plan on keeping the car that height? Had one in high school and air shocks was the only way I could get it up that high, I hated using them. Anyway, I do like the raised look and having a hard time finding a way to accomplish it and still have a good ride.

Re: Good alignment shop in Denver?

I got several 357 Mag hollow points with "Air shocks" engraved on them. I stocked up as well proir to the upcoming amo tax hike.

The new suspension will change the look a lot. I have the "80's" look now:
- stock height front end
- jacked up rear end
- skinny tires in front
- fat meats in the rear
- solid 15 inch wheels all around,
- drum brakes front/back.

When it's all done, it will be more of touring look.
- lowered front end
- lowered rear end
- wide but low profile front tires
- wide but low profile rear tires (backs wider than fronts),
- spoked 17-18 inch wheels
- disk brakes all round
- 11-13 inch drilled/slotted rotters
- red calipers

Besides the airshocks to get the backend up, you can also use rasing blocks. Some guys on this site have used them. I hear you can get 1-3 inches out of them but once again, it messes with the ride/handling.

Re: Good alignment shop in Denver?

Got my car aligned today. If you're looking for an alignment shop in Denver that will treat you and your ride right (and I mean right) then this is the place you want to visit. These people defined professionalism. Johnny and his crew are hands down the best I've ever dealt with.

I was greeted in a friendly fashion.
I got to pull my car on the lift.
They treated my ride like it was their own.
They aligned my car to my desired specs.
They requested that I close my hood.
I got to pull my car off the lift.
I was given the option to test drive my car to make sure alignment felt correct.
I was told not to hesitate to stop by anytime for free adjustment if something didn't seem right.

Need I say more? The place is:

Alignment Masters
1683 W Sheri Lane
Littleton, CO 80123
303.761.7219
