Wheel alignment

I just replaced the tires on the LR3, but have not done the wheel alignment. Can the wheel alignment be done on a non rover shop, or is it specifically at a LR dealer?

Thanks in advance.

IMO you will better off going to the dealer, granted my opinion is biased since I work at one If the shop is familiar with Land Rovers that have air suspension you should be fine, but if not they might align it to the complete wrong specs since they won't put it in tight tolerance mode and they could also have the suspension in the wrong position. Overall I'd say its a gamble to take it somewhere other than the dealer.

Make sure you get a printout of the before and after alignment specs, and post them up here if you feel inclined. More than likely it will just need a front and rear toe adjustment.

You can negotiate with the dealer on price. It was still more expensive than the local tire shop but I was able to get the dealer to split the difference with me when we aligned the wife's 3.
