    After doing which of the following will be getting an alignment be a good idea...

    -Installing coilovers.

    -Raising lowering using already installed coilovers.

    -Adjusting (not installing) a camber kits settings.

    -Putting on new (different size rims/tires).

    Thanks, I have an idea but just wanted to clarify as I am putting on new rims and making some adjustments to my setup this weekend. Thanks guys...

    I never said I was adjusting the camber and not aligning it, I am trying to clarify what affects alignment and what doesen't. And apparently I needed an alignment after I got my new coilovers on and adjusted them (about a year ago) :lol: .

    And this weekend I will prolly raise the front of my car 1/2" when i put my new rims on and wanted to know if it'd be a good idea to do before the alignment or whether it didn't matter. Thanks!

    I'm trying to decide whether to get the SPC ball joint kit but I haven't got any feedback on it...
