yes, they do smoke a lot. but i have been using Vic's since 1996, then left the state, then came back - and they still do superb job. i used them for alignments only. they price at $40 an axle. they have historically been the best priced, to my knowledge. at the same time, they do not do ""cheap"" jobs.
Pros: very experienced and diligent crew
Cons: i'll take small cons, more of inconveninces, but have good job done
