No alignments at least not the last time I was there. He doesn't have the space to get an alignment rack installed.

Tho does it all man! He did all suspension work on my GS's. Now with the bone stock LS430, he only does oil changes. Lol. As for you guys asking about ALIGNMENT, you can go across the street to Dynamic Auto Service. Son is a great guy too

I took my GS350 for the recall. Upon inspection, the dealership told me that the water pump was leaking. They quoted me $750 to get it fixed if I did it along with the recall, if I was to do it outside the recall window, it would cost $1000. Luckily I did my research and knew it didn't cost that much to replace the water pump. I immediately called Tho and he was able to provide a much better quote. Long story short, I got the water pump, oil change, brake fluid change all under the initial Lexus quote and done by the next morning. Definitely will use his services in the future.
