It is best to take it to the dealer.

Hunter is a company that produces the alignment machines that many shops use for most cars, but Hunter produces a special machine that is modified specifically for use on our cars.

You also need to use a spread bar to "pre-load" the suspension to properly align it, too.

I tried several tire shops who said they could do the alignment anyway, but it was a waste of money. It was never right.

I think I paid about $100 at the dealer, but it was well worth the money. It was over a year ago, and the car tracks perfectly straight.
