Default How much does a 4 wheels alignment usually Cost?

Since my car has all new struts, sway bar, ect, ect. I need a complete 4 wheel alignment. Camber, toe in/out. It needs to go off of the tie rods and struts.
I called a place close to where i live and they quoted me $79.95! Isnt that too cheap? they said its a complete 4 wheel alignment, and they said they do everything i mentioned above.
what is the normal cost?

If they say they do everything, and they are a respectable shop, it could just be a good price. Like i said in a previous post, some places will charge as low as $75. All depends on where u live and what kind of shops you have available. You could always call again to double check they do everything you want, plus make sure to tell them when you take it in.

I've had it done for $70 before, and I've also had it done for $90. All depends on where you go.

They are cheaper than what i thought. I just called a couple places. $70-$80 for a complete 4 wheel alignment.
Not bad

I get it for a 30 pack. He leaves the rear alone and sets the front toe. All that can be done for newer models without altering things. Life is good in Purgatory.
