alignment question.

Just got set of toytec coilovers set for 2.5". I am currently running readylift coil spacers for the same amount of lift.

Will i need a wheel alignment?

Thanks.

if you took one coilover out and installed another even though they are the same size I would recommend getting the alignment done again. fifty dollars is well worth saving your tires.

Sub'd for response. I don't feel like spending $350 again on one alignment. These Icon UCAs must suck at aligning.

A place in Merrimack near my work....needless to say never again. The tech mentioned it was the hardest alignment he had ever done. It does look like a PITA.

They don't have set rates for an alignment?!?! I'm sorry man but you got taken for a ride. The place I go charges $60 for an alignment, if it takes them longer than expected thats their problem. They'll even redo it within 90 days if you think it's off. Alignments are not that hard and should NEVER cost $350 (especially on a 2009 where things couldn't have possibly been rusted on that badly).

I couldn't tell but it looks like you need to remove the main bolt to adjust the uca. I know it should not have been that much.

Where do you go?

Townfair tire. Hell, the stealership only charges $90. They also shouldn't be removing anything, just loosening in order to adjust. With the equipment they have, it's not that bad, just adjust til the red numbers turn green on the machine. It might be too late but if this was yesterday, I'd go back in there and try to get some money back, that's just flat out robbery.
