Adjusting Toytec Coilovers

I just put my lift on but the passenger side is abut a half inch higher than the drivers side. When I tried to adjust the drivers side higher I broke one of the wrenchs they supplied me with. Will this mess up my alignment? Any Ideas how to fix it?

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

You need to get an alignment anytime you move your coilovers up or down.

I am getting ready to install the Toytec tomorrow. The co's said they were factory set @ 2.5". Should I adjust them to 3" or start out with the factory setting?

Ive heard its best to start higher, then adjust them down to where you want it after a they've settled. atleast thats what I did, and its easier to adjust them down then up.
