4 Wheel alignment reccomendations

Hi guys
I'm looking at getting a 4 wheel alignment check, my new GTV doesn't quite feel 'right' when cornering fast, and feels like it pulls to the right slightly when "pressing on". (Yes checked tyre pressures)

I've googled "4 wheel alignment norfolk" and its pulled up:
STR Service Centre- Free check but 25 per adjustment

OR

SCA Performance Centre - no prices mentioned

Anyone had dealings with either of these places?

Cheers
Alex

depends where you are. i had mine done a desira in great yarmouth think it was 60 (almost bit their hand off, might of been an error). where as desira in norwich wanted more that double that. alfa shop send their cars somewhere to have it done, is quite expensive but it would be a top job.

Thanks, I'm actually in Great Yarmouth but not sure that anywhere here does actual 4 wheel alignment, not just 2 wheel.
It was actually Alfashop who reccomended getting alignment checked, but I didn't think to ask for a reccomendation of where! Smart thing to do would be to give them a ring I guess...

Shame you're so far away from Peterboorugh mate. I know that JabawockyJay had his done here earlier this year and was very happy.

Desira was a 4 wheel. I tried Kirkley run. Good for cheap tyres but useless in every other department.

Avanti in Ipswich do this - for a reasonable price - worth a drive down from Norfolk imo.

They produce printouts which actually mean something when you look at them.

Recommended (by me personally not as an AO staff member).

Was there not someone who recently recommended a tyre company in Thetford for reasonable cost alignment?
Search ought to reveal the post, and it's easy access from Great Yarmouth.

Sorry for going silent, busy at work!
I ended up going to SCA Performance in Norwich, good service, cost ~80 for full 4 wheel alignment.
Certainly improved things a lot, the car goes in a straight line now!

For info Alfashop recommends/uses a company called Autotest on the airport industrial estate.
