    Ok, this may be a stupid questions, but here goes anyways.

    Is your alignment tire specific? What I mean is, if I do my lift on stock tires, then get it aligned, do I have to get another one when I buy new tires?

    Here is my plan. I am going to go with the eibach coils and billies set to .85 in the front with the 2 inch aal in the rear with billies as well. BUt it may be another couple months before I can do wheels and tires. So I will need to get an alignment in the meantime. But if I have to get it aligned twice, I may wait to do the lift until I am getting wheels and tires.

    Then again, I may spring for the lifetime alignment, so it may be a moot point anyways.

    You won't need a new alignment after you add the new tires.

    X2. You shouldnt need a new alignment. A lifetime alignment plan wouldnt be a bad idea though especially if you plan to do some off-roading. I know a number of guys on here that have a lifetime plan and they have already made up for within a year or so. But then again, these guys do some intense off-roading.

    Thanks guys. Thats what i thought, but that could be an expensive mistake. The local NTB's price for a lifetime is just about the price of 2 alignments. So if I have trouble getting it aligned, and have to take it back it will just about pay for itself. Plus if I eventually add UCA's and go up to a full 3 inches, i will have to have it done again. It is something that I see could be necessary down the road. If I never need to do it again, then I am one of the very few, very lucky ones and I will count my blessings.

    If your getting an alignement and see a place using a computer get in your car and leave, the majority of the workers are punk ass people who don't know jack, will take your cash and your shit is still not aligned. They are getting hard to find now but I find a place that does it oldschool with just measuring tape or string, the guy that does my alignement has been doing them for 40 years and can look at your car and tell you what the settings are, amazing
