skill required for wheel alignment

Anybody know how much skill it takes to do wheel alignments?
If this wheel alignment is not rocket science then, I am willing to go to a
cheaper shop that does this kind of service using older machines, as oppose to going to a wheel alignment specialist shops which charge you more but uses a fancier newer digital machine (hunter is the brand).

I have done many alignments before retiring, but I would take my toyota to the dealer because they have the latest machines and updated infor.

I guess if you want your alignment done by a worn out old machine not using the latest specs go ahead...

Go with the digital four wheel alignment. Alignment is usually not required unless suspension components are worn or have recently been replaced. The only real adjustment is toe in, because the strut is an integral part of the suspension and the upper mounting point is fixed. The suspension links in the rear shouldn't move - all that's left is the bushings F&R, which should also be stable. Had mine checked after three years - still fine. Before and after readings essentially unchanged, still had to pay $69.95 for labor, although they did spend three hours at the dealer trying to find other things to build future work. So I consider the $70 a diagnostic fee to pinpoint incipient seepage at the oil pan, trans. pan and dist. O-ring, which I repaired myself. Their list was longer, but some of the other items were already scheduled and some were unnecessary.
