Alignment recommendation in Omaha

Driving back from Denver this last weekend - I hit some road construction, and more painfully, I hit a HUGE bump. The MINI took the hit pretty hard, my rearview mirror was knocked out of place, and I was convinced I had bent my rims.
After pulling over and looking everthing seemed to be fine, but I've now noticed my alignment is off. The top stiching on the steering wheel does not stay centered and it's pulling to the left just a bit.
I know that Markel would do a good job of fixing my pride and joy, but I also know they would probably be the most expensive. I was wanting to get some feedback and/or recommendations of an alignment shop here in Omaha to check out.
thanks in advance,
Mark

Sorry to hear about your problem, glad everything else is OK. Sorry I can't help you with the alignment shop. I've always used Tires Plus on my previous cars and had been satisfied with them but haven't needed anything with the MINI yet.

Mark,
Make sure you take a look in the engine compartment. Check out the strut tower tops to be sure there is no mushrooming of the top surface. This is a known issue with large holes with the MINI. Nothing a 2x4 chunk of wood and a hammer can't fix.
