NO!!!!!! especially if its a lowrider and has been cut... you don't need to align anything on the suspension
WTF?? you cant be serious...

yes, it would be wise to have your tires balanced, if you plan to drive the car on the highway. If it will just be street driving, it wont make any real difference...

it would also be a good idea to get the toe in/ toe out set correctly...

caster/ camber continually changes, so that would be wasted money, unless you set the car at your usual ride height, and have it alligned there

we never get our shit aligned... our tires have ghetto tucks... meaning about 3-4 inch extended arms... Do you really think an alignment is going to help out the tire when you drive it at 70 mph on the freeway with your tires tucked out like that?

Save your money, do it L.A. style, don't align.

when you install kos do you use your existing tire on your car or is it a different tire? if you can use your existing tire do you need to adjust your tire or do anything special to it to make it usable again? this is a confusion to me

if you don't have hydraulics, balance them... align your car, w/e

if you have hydraulics, don't align, don't balance... What the hell are you going to do that? Your suspension alignment changes when you hit the switch...

i know its confusing because of the opposing posts.

but 216 is right in my opinion.

but let me see if i can clarify this for you.

you definitely need to balance your tires. if your putting
M's(13's) or N's(14's) your tires will spin at a higher revolution at the same speed than a normal tires.

speed balance your tires. to avoid the weights from making your rims look ugly, as them to place the weights on the inside of your rim.

as for alignment, choose a heighth were you will be driving your ranfla most of the time. us this as a starting point and base your alignment from there.

if you see a rim shop that also does alignment, they are your best bet.

both are imperative, i have done this for years, and the homies before me for decades.

if you need further info. send me a pm.

hope this helps,

:cheesy: ,
