I'm thinking about doing some suspension upgrades. But before I even go down that path I want to make sure I will be able to get a good alignment afterwards and have the bushings clocked.
I don't mind paying extra to ensure it's done right (I.E a performance shop). I just have no clue where to go or who to trust.

I posted this question previously and got zero recommendations.

Might help if you said where you are, SW Ont covers a lot of ground. Just sayin'.

That's true. I don't mind driving a bit to get it done right. Specifically and hopefully close to Kitchener/Cambridge/Guelph area.

since you are out that way, the closet place that can help you would be Steeda.ca, who is now in Hamilton

That's not too far. I had no idea Steeda had a shop in Hamilton. Thank you!

So I contacted Steeda.ca they told me they don't do alignments but they farm it out to a 3rd party. I also asked for an estimate on lowering spring install / alignment labor cost and got crickets...

Then contact DaSilva Racing, they also farm out alignments, but are a busy shop with a quick turnaround

Thanks for the suggestion. Steeda finally got back to me with an estimate that is let's say... unacceptably so expensive that I won't even consider having them do the springs. So I will be doing the install myself.

Lol. I’m am completely not surprised by the estimate!! I’ve quoted a few things from them and every single time the price was ridiculous. I honestly cannot believe they’re still in business. Not surprised if the change of address. Maybe wore out there welcome in Milton? Can’t comment on their skills though...

I would get a quote from Clearshot Customs. I’m not sure if they do alignments in house though. But they stand behind their work and are easy to deal with. Pricing may still be expensive as everything is around here.

Good luck!

Shoot me a pm if you go ahead and do it yourself and maybe need an extra hand.

I second DaSilva Racing in Pickering. They will farm it out but they are a Mustang specialist and only deal with outside shops that are in the know from experience...not to mention they have a dyno...which is how I found them initially! :)

If you’re still looking for a dyno, check out CCPerformance now in Breslau. (Was Waterloo). Arun (owner) is a genuine stand up guy. He’s a Chevy guy with Canada’s fastest Vette and will likely compete this year for the US as well once it’s finished. He just bought a 21 Mustang to play with and has already done a few things including his own tune. Shameless plug for a friend but he’s local and honest.

Thanks for the heads up Torinate. DaSilva was a great experience but I just hate driving across the GTA to get there lol I will look him up for sure, I’ve been wanting to strap her back down after a few mods ;)

No problem. He’s a great guy. Honest. Does a lot of high end stuff along with anything performance related. Another member from your way (Londonish) just had him dyno his ESS supercharged mustang. Maybe he’s up for a get together as well. @kevinvan6000
