Alignment Shop - Atlanta

Hi, I'm looking for an alignment shop in the Atlanta area experienced aligning sensitive autos such as a Lotus.

All the ones I come across are geared more to aligning Buicks, Fords, etc...

The main thing I'm looking for is a shop with a high-end rack with front and rear turn/slip-plates (under each wheel).

Anyone have recommendations?

Thanks

GTE at 3306 Shallowford Road. 770 455-0347. I have been going there for 30 years. HUGE amount of experience, they do lots of high end cars, race cars, autocross cars, etc. Jeff does most of the alignment work, Kieran runs the front desk. They do have a higher rate for the Lotus, as it's considered "exotic".

You can mention my name, but I know they'll give you a hard time! they are great guys, stand behind their work and know a lot.

I haven't used them for my Elise, but I have used them on other cars since the late '70's. They've always done good work for me on 911's, 240z, etc. over the years. You may want to ask them about their Elise/Exige experience, although I'm sure they can handle it.

GTE is THE place to go. All of my cars have gone there. I have had track set ups done there and everyday set ups. They will have zero problem with the Lotus.

Great recommendations. I'll take it in with my shim kit from JAE.

Thanks all

Whoops. Just saw you had an Esprit, not an Elise. Sorry about that! Same recommendation, though, as these guys have probably done them all.
