Now that I've put a staggered set of 18" wheels on the whip, it may be time to get it more acquainted with the pavement. I'm looking to lower it about an 1 1/2 with the H&R springs but I'm wondering about alignment. Will it need serious re-aligning after this or will it be ok? What I mean by "serious aligning" is, camber correcting devices. I don't want to have to use any of the sort. I wouldn't think that lowering it only that much would require any but then again this is my first rodeo with one of these cars. Will it even need any re-aligning at all? Thanks, Mike.

You don't have to align it. But it's suggested. It'll reduce the camber alittle, and may cause accelerated tire wear on the inside edge. There's no factory adjustment for the rear camber (though I have heard rumors of replacement camber rods of different lengths to correct from the aftermarket). You can adjust the front camber with the use of offset bolts. But most people just simply toss the springs in and go.
