    I use a Gunson Trakrite, got it for just under £50 on ebay. It doesn't use lasers, you drive over the gauge and if the wheels aren't perfectly aligned the sideways force moves the needle on the gauge and it tells you whether you have too much toe-in or toe-out. It's saved me a small fortune in alignment fees, because even if your alignment is fine, if you ask the high street places to check it they often tell you it's out, as the £30 fee helps them meet their daily revenue target.
