    That setup should work just fine.

    Winner...do it. Pay for 1 yr, 3 yr or lifetime alignment somewhere so you can get do-overs done periodically for free or free if you change something later.

    Thats a very good idea. Now the question is;

    Will midas or any car repair center install? Or do I have to go to the stealership?

    How many hours should something like this take? Thanks guys!

    I did get NTB to do install and alignment while there. Bought the 1 yr at the time. Got 5 alignments done in that yr. How long it takes might depend on what all they have going on but a few to several hrs. I kinda checked when their front end/alignment guru was gonna be there and and made appointment of sorts. They were expecting me. I dropped it off first thing at opening time and came back mid afternoon to get it. Make sure you get 0 camber, 0 toe & 2.5 caster. I wouldn't give the stealership that kind of business, they only get to do warranty work on mine...and that is even regretfully, but it's free so...I mean 50.00 deductible. :D

    Thank you so much. I wrote down what the camber, toe, and caster should be for my lift, thanks for that. How often should alignments be? Once every two months?

    That's pro-comp not all pro.

    If you search for ES9000 you can find what other TW users who've installed it think of it. Ignore any uninformed comments by anyone who calls it a "spacer lift" because it isn't one.

    IIRC, the summary was "functional, but stiff" because the ES 9000 springs have a particularly high spring rate.

    I did one after a few moths because I changed to aftermarket UCAs (LR) and had it done every few months just to make sure how the alignment was hangin and to make sure I got my more than my money's worth. The 3yr one I bought for my car is actually a transferable one you can use on any of your vehicles. Not sure if the transfer is a one time thing or what catches there are to doing that.
