Lowering Springs + Full geometry alignment

Hi guys,

I've got the itching mod and am looking to change my springs to either eibachs/H&R's.

Is it essential to get a full geometry alignment done after changing the springs?

Thanks

Yes. As you lower the car, the toe automatically goes into the negative range. That's gonna eat tires quickly.

Yes. Most aftermarket springs require an alignment. Some will give you new specs, most will say to align it as close to stock parameters.
