Any time that you change the car's ride height or disassemble its suspension for any reason, you need to at least check the alignment. It may be good, close enough, or not and needs adjustment.

Just the clearances in the various holes for the bolts that go through them may allow the bolts to not go back together exactly the way they were before.

Kind of separate, but when you swap in all those parts which are intended for harder cornering you'll probably want a fussier and more aggressive alignment than OE for an SS to take better advantage of it all.

I was poking around partstaxi.com and they have a package for 1LE suspension minus hubs and rear cradle bushings. The part numbers they list do not match with those I've seen on this thread. Is there something I'm missing?

http://www.partstaxi.com/products.php?partID=1651

22812942 Front Stab Bar Asm (bar, links, bushing, clamp, nut) 1
22786260 Rear Stab Bar Asm (bar, bushing, clamp, bolt) 1
22761221 Rear Stab Bar Link 2
22812982 Front Strut Asm, LH (strut, spring, mount) 1
22812983 Front Strut Asm, RH (strut, spring, mount) 1
22981391 Rear Shock 2
22922445 Rear Shock Mount, LH 1
22922446 Rear Shock Mount, RH 1
22845487 Rear Toe Link 2

Anyone else confirm that going from 2013 FE4 to 1LE FE6 is just the rear shocks and shock "bumpers", f/r sway bars, wheel bearings, and cradle bushings? Everything else looks same as FE4 including springs and front struts.

Fairly sure it was mentioned that front struts were monotube.

I already have upgraded endlinks and sways that fit into my 2010 FE2. If I just wanted to upgrade to the 1LE shocks and struts my endlinks wouldn't fit any more is that correct?
