The difference in ride height will change your suspension geometry. You will need to have the wheels re-aligned, in order to compensate for the changes in control arm positions.

I believe TOC has an image host, but I am not sure. I host my pics on photobucket, but there are many free ones out there.

Anyway, when you upload a pic to the server, it will be given a url, and you use this url in conjunction with the bbcode tags.

The format would look like this

[img]theimageurlgoeshere[/img]

Use a set of the IMG tags for each picture.

It will be easy once you do it a couple times

Well, got my springs installed last week, and am very pleased. The ride is actually smoother than my old stock springs, and yet much more responsive. I actually got in my car today after driving the company 2007 Chevy Aveo and could really notice the difference in how responsive and "tight" my car felt. I plan on getting a wheel alignment in a week or so once they have settled a bit.

Thanks to all for the info on the springs.

Should be done at the same time as there is no "settling" involved. The more the alignment is out, the more tread wear will occur.

If it is out much, a new pair of tires can be worn out in a few months.

And an alignment should always be performed with new tires.

In due time :wink:


The guy at the shop that put the springs in told me I should put a 1000Km on before I get an alignment or I would need another one in a month.
