Default alignment

When I pulled my summer wheels/tires off the other day, I noticed the fronts had some camber wear on the inside. Guess I'll get the alignment checked.

My question for everyone is this: Does it matter where I go? Toyota wants around $140. I can go to a tire shop like NTB, Tire Barn, or even Sears and get it for half that.

I asked the Toyota service rep if their alignment was different from anyone else's just to see what he'd say. His response was that they do a computerized alignment to make sure it is accurate. I imagine everyone would have a computerized alignment machine wouldn't they?

Unless they're aligning the rear, properly, I wouldn't hand over $140 for an alignment.

Unless it was lifetime.
