Any experience with Firestone in Freehold?

I'm always changing/playing with my suspension.... normally I drive back to Hamilton and have a buddy align my jeep at the shop i used to work at; but that's getting more challenging now as my family is growing and no longer having a 3rd vehicle.

Next month i'm going to be swapping my struts out and was thinking of giving the Firestone in Freehold a try. I know i'm going to need at least 3 alignments in the foreseeable future (swapping struts next month, installing superlift next spring/summer, modifying height of superlift to 6" before new tires)... so I would definitely get the "Lifetime Alignment" package.

Just wondering if anyone has experience with this shop or knows some of the techs there.

Go to Globex located just south of there on the Lakewood/Toms River border. They specialize in lifted Jeep Alignments. http://www.globexperformance.com/

Thanks. I'm very familiar with globex (was a member of njja too, just having trouble making meetings for the same reason its hard to find time to go back to my friends shop ) .... there's nothing special about the alignment though so no need to go to a special jeep shop (i've spent many hours under an alignment rack working on lifted vehicles; unfortunately i don't have an alignment rack in my garage and I no longer work as a tech).

In the next year or so I'll need 3 alignments; hence why im interested in Firestone's lifetime alignment program... i know i'll get my money's worth. However, having been in the business I know there are some shops that just don't want to deal with "lifted" vehicles (even though a superlifted XK/WK is easier to align than a stock one, but that's besides the point).

Keeping my fingers crossed that they're a "modified" friendly shop. If they're not, I'll just work the logistics and find a way get get back to my friends place.
