WA- PNW/ good suspension shop near Tacoma

I recently installed some Figs mega arms and toe links and had an alignment done at Kimballs on 90th and Pacific. Based off of the visual I did before and after I believe they didn't fix the negative camber in the back like how I thought they could have with the new Megan arms I put on. Does anyone know of a better place I can go that will actually use the figs parts to make the adjustments? I will undoubtedly ask Kimballs for a refund if it is proven the specs could be adjusted more than what they did.

I'm assuming they didn't give you a print out of your post-alignment specs?

They gave me what looks like a hand written work order that had a list of measurements written down. I was expected to see metrics listed changes in degrees, but based off of the quick run down from the desk person (had to pick up my car right before closing because of work) he pretty much just said that the specs were really out of whack, and they fixed it. The numbers did go down, but I hate to say it I didn't push the issue for a better run down as I could tell he was itching to get out of dodge and go home.

You should probably post those (before&after) specs on here to get a better idea.

Please see the attached photo. The summary sheet they gave me cut off some of the verbiage on the left.

Sorry I can't help with shops in Tacoma but in Portland I just had my suspension and alignment done at Rhom Innovations. It's a reputable race shop and Chris Rhom went out off his way to explain everything and even helped me research various suspension options before my purchase.
