Roseville/Rocklin/Sacramento Alignment?

Can anyone recommend a shop for aligning a lowered M3 that's reasonably priced? I'm looking in the Roseville/Rocklin or Sacramento area.

Thanks!

I have not personally used them yet. But a buddy with a e90 m3 has told me to try valley motorwerks. I had them quote a few things for me a while ago and it didn’t seem too bad. I’d try here first.

There is also foreign autohaus, but they seem to be less tuner friendly from what I could gather. Also haven’t used them... yet. Owner drives a M4 cs.

I had my car PPI at ipb autosport. Owner was cool but more a Porsche guy.

These have been the main ones I have targeted and spoke to, figured I’d share.
I try to do everything I can myself. Been saving up a few things...
I’m actually having Crank hub and a few other things done in LA this week. I have not been able to decide on a dedicated shop here in folsom. Im in the same area.

Clark frame in Roseville off of cirby and riverside has done my last few cars, including my m4. I found them a few years ago as they were the only ones who could get my procharged 5.0 on a rack since it was so low. That car always went straight down the track running 8.9-9.2 second passes so that convinced me they do good work lol.

Thanks Man! I always trust what you tell me so I went to Les Schwab. They actually told me I didn't need an alignment, which is weird because I lowered my car. Oh well, least they're honest. Thanks again for all the replies.

Did they give you the printout?
Odd. They told me the same when I put my coilovers on but I was already lowered on an alignment and I marked my rear bolts really well.

I wasnít too far off but not enough to warrant an alignment.

Going to see what Clark Frame is all about lol.

Yep, here's the printout. They said it was within standards for BMW.
