Alignment Shop - Orlando

Hey guys. I replaced my toe links over the break and needed an alignment. I struggled to find a place that could get my car on the rack but found Rev Works in Winter Spings. The mechanic/owner (Scott) is a racer and spent about 3 hours aligning my car. No affiliation with them, but they did a great job for any loal guys looking for an alignment shop. I would highly recommend them.

Welcome to Rev Works Inc. -

Also, Scotty is the guy that built this monster for Andrew back in 2006 so he does have some experience with our cars.

Awesome, thanks for the info, as I have a set of toe links to install myself and have been fearing finding a decent shop.

We had an in ground alignment rack when I worked at infiniti in winter springs. It was very nice for low cars. But, you can get your car on a normal alignment rack even with the splitter. I did it a couple weeks ago with a few wooden boards.

I just had a lift installed this Christmas and love it - that's what finally got me to do the toe links.

I believe Lotus of Orlando / Infiniti has the pit as well at their new location, but they were a lot more expensive and could not get me in until mid-January.

Also - Scott @Revworks used to work for PRS and opened his own shop. He was very cordial about the whole thing when I inquired. He just said he and his partner had different ideas and he decided to open his own shop.

Note to MikeG911, just curious as to how much your alignment cost if you don't mind sharing. Thanks.

Sure - they had a special for $99. Mine ended up being $150 out the door because they had to add and remove a whole bunch of shims.
