WHen I got my last alignment done at wheel warehouse, I want to say it was $75. But you can look up their number on the web and call them to confirm.

If you're in San Diego, there are two shops I would reccommend.

I'd becareful of these "lifetime" deals unless you know who's working on your car and they are good. Far too many shops do mickey mouse jobs and by the time you detect probelms, there go the tires. That's an expensive lesson.

Unless you drive over curbs or go off-road with regularity, a good alignment will last. One good alignment I had for my other car I went the life of the tires 28K miles. I messed the car up when I agreed to an alignment job when the next set of tires went on...that was a bad move on my part.

Unless there are problems in tire wear, obvious pulling or suspension work, I don't mess with the alignment settings. That's my view. YMMV
