    I want to crank my 04 silverado 4x4 today or tomarrow while I have some time off. But none of the alignment shops are open and I'm a little short on cash. A friend of mine said they only charge $30 something, but that was his Jeep. I just want to make sure they aren't going to charge something like $80-90 because of the IFS and 4x4. So whats the average cost of an alignment?

    I think I paid $60ish 2 years ago.

    Call the Sear's service center nearest you!! That's where I always go. I've called the other shops and they want anywhere from $40-60 and I've got to leave it there for a day. I go to Sears and they pull it in and out while I wait (twice now, never waited more than an hour) and charge about $68.
    Plus Sears is in the Mall and I go walk around, eat lunch, come back and it's ready.

    70 is the going rate around here for a 4x4 with no lift.
    Worn parts are extra
    Most shops that I've talked with won't warranty an alignment on a modified vehicle.

    shouldn't be that much, i just paid $65 canadian for my 4x4, so surely in american money it wouldn't be that much.

    $65.00 but I have to take mine to an RV-Semi Shop because it's a Crew cab long bed and nobody else in town has a rack long enough to put it on.
    Most of the regular places around here are $55.00 for a regular length 4X4truck and about $40.00 for a 2wd.
