Take it to Akron Tire in Garden City, corner of Cherryhill and Inkster rd. Fair priced and honest.

our shop runs 49.95 for cars and light trucks, 69.95 for trucks and vans, and 89.95 for 4-wheel alignments. that seems to be about the going rate for them right now.

if you plan on having it for a good while consider a firestone lifetime alignment, 150$ but after that its free, i ve had my bronco in 3 times since the first one -no charge

camber is when the tops of the tires lean in or out. Sounds like your toe is off and thats just a tie rod adjustment.
