Alignment?

Hey guys,

I have an '03 C32 AMG, and the other night I was driving in a bad storm and a car to the left of me suddenly swerved into my lane. I had no choice but to swerve to the right and hit the curb.

Needless to say, I damaged my front right rim.

Oh well, it was time to go get 19's anyway

Now I have some brand new 19" Foose Lusso's and they're SICK.

But, my car seems to pull a great deal to the left. My steering wheel has to be at about 5-10 degrees to the right before I can go straight.

Is all I need to do take the car in for an alignment?

What's the chances a good independent shop could do just as good/better of a job than the dealership?

Do they have to be knowledgeable about Benz in general to align a Benz car?

Thanks!
Mike

They definitely need to know about MBs as your car has no provision for caster or camber adjustments without the installation of a new bolt kit. You may have just screwed the toe-in which directly messes the steering wheel, but if you were to need caster or camber you need to know about the bolt kits.
