Hi everyone,

For those of you who did the spring upgrade did you need to have an alignment done? When I replaced my springs on my 240sx I had to go get an alignment but with the Forte having a spring/shock rear system and a strut in front, I was wondering if anyone saw camber/toe issues.

Any information would be helpful since I plan to do mine soon.

Get it align after you put your spring on. Mine was off from factory!!!
I'm going to have the dealership double-check the alignment on my car when i take it in for a seat rattle and e-brake adjustment.

At highway speed it tends to pull to the left. The last time I went, they blamed the tires and switched 'em, but it didn't change a thing.

Get it done by a reputable alignment shop! I don't realy trust Dealer for that matter!
Went to a shop in eastern Mtl., cost me 30$

A laser alignment would cost me around 60$.

The dealer will do it for free, and I have to go there anyway for other warranty work. I'll give it a shot.

As a dealer who does modifications for showroom vehicles I will tell you that an alignment should always be done after lowering the vehicle, even the slightest camber change will cause premature tire wear, even on the lightest vehicle.

I have seen a lowered Rio5 with 16,000 km on it need to have the tires replaced.

Cheers,
