Exclamation Where to get alignment after lowering DC/MD/VA area?!

I will be having new Konis and H&R springs installed this weekend. I will of course need an alignment done afterwards.

Where should I go for this? I live in Washington D.C.

I have tried PTuning but they are booked on Saturday and closed on Sunday. Any other options out there?

PLEASE HELP!!

Just get it done there when they have an opening. A couple weeks driving before getting it done wont hurt anything. Ive had my h&r springs and konis on my car for 2500 miles now with no abnormal tire wear.

Alright... The soonest I could get it done would be August 18th (having dental surgery on the weekend of the 10th) so It'd be about 12 days driving on them from the time they're installed. Should be okay right?

No it wont and after your alignement you probably wont see any difference at all in driving compare to before.

Thats in the optic that your car was all good before and was going straight also. If yes then you wont see a difference if any
