1.6" lift: When to get alignment

I have 5100s w/ Eibachs set at 0 going in some time next week. My rims don't arrive until Thursday and I'll be putting Duratracs on them (265/75/16).

How much can I drive the vehicle before its alignment. Is it safe to drive all week at low speeds, not at all, limited highway driving, etc...

I Did that setup except with .85 on the bilsteins. I think I went three days. Under 100 miles or so Im pretty sure.

U should be fine for a little while. I was.

I went to Knibbe Automotive in Crowfoot. I told them exactly what I wanted for my alignment, and they got it spot on. I've gone to other places, and told them what I wanted, and all they did was give me a smart ass attitude like I didn't know shit, and the alignments all ended up less then perfect.
