anyone know of a GOOD alignment shop in Trenton/Hamilton area?

Trying to find someone who is willing to fix my cross-caster issue (my car has a slight drift to the right and I am convinced that is because my left caster has +0.04 more than the right).

When I had the alignment checked by one shop it was 5.6 on the left, 5.2 on the right but they gave me the usual "it's in the green so we're not touching it" deal.

Steering wheel is a little off to the right which corresponds with the "drift" to the right (if I hold the wheel to the left to keep it straight, the steering wheel is straight).

Thanks!

Feather-light suspension, Konis just couldn't hold. I'm so glad I took a look inside your showroom doors.

Hey everybody, it's good to have you on the Baba-too-da-ba-too-ba-ba-buh-doo-ga-ga-bop-a-dop

Thanks...will check them out if I don't get anywhere with that shop I went to that actually tried to fix today (tells me caster is maxed out on the right..which is now showing barely 3 now!)

I'm wondering if he went the wrong way with the caster (if I look underneath the car it looks as if the right caster adjustment bolt is all the way "in" meaning "closer to the center of the car").

Still drifts to the right, not really any worse though which is weird if the number is that off...

Car has 45000 miles, never hit
