Steering alignment shop in Columbia area?

I have a 2000 XJ with a 3" lift that I think has bad caster due to the lift.

I need the steering aligned from a shop that knows what they are doing.

I called one place that told me I needed to put a new steering
stabilizer on. They also said that bad caster makes the wheels go
only one direction, not either direction when they should be re-centering.

So, just looking for a place that knows my dilemma and can help fix it.

Thx

Do you have adjustable uppers and lowers? To fix the issue your having, you will need those. You can but bolts that will help adjust the caster but they're not very reliable. loosen up while driving over time so you have to keep adjusting them. It is much easier and more affective to use a just adjustable lower control arms
