Default Wheel Alignment in Arizona

Anyone know a place that will do wheel alignments in Arizona (greater phoenix area)? I took my car to several places near me (ie midas, firestone, pepboys) and they all looked at my car and said can't do it... The car sits on stock suspension but isn't too far off the ground due to the body kit. The wheels went from 18 to 19x9.5/19x11 so i just wanted to get an alignment, but can't find any place to do it. Anyone know a spot?

I mean, so did firestone, but they said something about their new machine's hands/arms can't get around the tire/wheel well? Honestly sounded like I got snubbed, but every place said the same thing. But I'll hit them up next time I'm in town. Thanks.

Phoenix is a major city so it seems odd that an owner would have problems finding a shop that can align any make of car. The 2003 and '04 350z had a bad reputation for wearing front tires. That was enough to scare off some shops, but that was a long time ago and the problem was resolved. I have not had any shop refuse to align my 350z in Minneapolis. In fact I have had several alignments over the last 16 years by multiple shops.

UMS or Dynocomp (kinda far away) can do it for you.
