at freeway cruising speeds im getting some steering wheel vibration. I have a good feeling the car sat for too long and the tires developed some flat spots .. I'm going to see if my local dealership can resolve that before I install the springs. I know they will blame the springs if I bring it in lowered : (

How long did it sit? It could just be alignment.

I can not argue with your logic. I would make sure everything is tip-top before you proceed!

I'm not sure. I've only had the car for 4 months and 2200 miles worth. I am thinking it may have sat at the lot or production line for a while. Either way I'll have the dealer check it out first so they can't play the blame game

Oh my bad. I thought you already installed the springs. It may just need a simple balance.
