Did you get the alignment checked...???

Hi ******.

Don't know if you noticed in another thread but I installed my own springs a couple of weeks ago. Yesterday I had the alignment done by a shop that specializes in race cars. He had the camber bolts (14 mm.) in stock, but was able to do it without using them. He loosened the stock bolts and then used a hand-pumped hydraulic 'spreader' tool to gently nudge the strut in the required direction and the slight tolerance in the mounting was enough to allow it to shift to the required position. Not sure if he had to do it on both sides - I only paid attention while he did one side. The 1.2" drop apparently doesn't cause much camber change. Of more significance is the toe-in change.
