Alignment after lift - recommendations?

Gonna be doing my lift/wheels next week. I have a shop that i've used for my alignment needs for ages and ages, but they're not as close and convenient now that i've moved. I may still use them, but I figured i'd ask here for input since it's easy to do.

Anyone have anyone that they want to recommend (i'm around Dixie and Bovaird)?

Let me know. Thanks!

Sometimes you just have to go to the shop that you trust and have used in the past

call them first an make sure they're comfortable aligning your tire size. I was turned away from a couple places when i had 35x13.5's because they wouldn't fit on the alignment machine.
