Yes, they can but they probably won't have yours on hand, so they'll have to order it or you can supply it.
If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.

Yes, most shops with an alignment rack should be able to fix it.

thanks guys, just got it fixed. It surprised me that it's not the left wheels that have problems, it's the right wheels. So I guess it has nothing to do with the car wash incident, I might have hit a pothole or something on the right side. My conclusion is: the room for error in the car wash rail is pretty large, it's not that easy to mess up alignment using the railed car wash, potholes are more likely to be the culprit.

Every dealer I've seen has a rack. It is such a cash cow that the larger dealers can do a pre check in the service drive through.

Get an alignment wherever you are comfortable. With dealers if something is within spec they might skip over the adjustmrmt. I like smaller shops because they put not effort into it.
