    Default Wheel alignment

    Hello I am wondering I just got my car lowered using lowering springs, how long should I wait to get a wheel alignment, should I let the springs settle and can you go anywhere for wheel alignment seeing it is lowered

    Align it ASAP. Jackie at Balance Auto has aligned all my vehicles after suspension work.

    As any car guy will tell you, avoid the dealerships unless you have warranty work or something dealer-only (eg. keyfob reprogramming).

    Too many dealership a) overcharge and b) fuckup simple things and then deny anything is wrong.

    Jackie did my EP3 years ago - I gave him some custom settings (neutral setup) and he was able to adjust the car to these instead of OEM (under steer). Car no longer ears tires.
