Installing bilsteins today! Alignment question.

I'm finally installing My bilsteins/2"aal today. I know I have to get an alignment but tomorrow is Sunday and obviously most shops are closed. Will anything be damaged if I run down the street to the grocery store? What about highway across town to church? Is it just a handling issue? I'll be sure to post pics after.

Drove 2 weeks - not a problem at all... I don't even think I needed an alignment but had it done anyway. You should still get it done, but should be fine.

All you're really doing is scrubbing the tires a little bit... that's assuming it's even off a measurable amount. Driving it for a few days should pose no problem... I wouldn't set off on a cross-country trip before the alignment, though.

I put 5100s up front on mine at 1.75" lift and took it in for an alignment. The tech came back in about 20 minutes later and asked if I had asked for an alignment or maybe something else since the wheels were almost exact on spec without adjustment.
