    I currently have the Toytec 1/4" spacer along with 5100s at .85. The spacer seemed to over compensate for my lean. My question is if I take the spacer out will I be good without getting it realigned ? Thanks

    Whenever you change the suspension or steering, even if just a little, it will change the geometry. Yes, it needs to be re-aligned.

    This is even true for changing the rear suspension. Lifting or lowering the back changes the caster up front.

    While what BirdTRD says is true, I would think for now, you could get by without..

    Alignment should still be close. If your tires are new, you may want to get the alignment done, otherwise, I'd wait till you get new tires.
