In ur opinon...?

So i got some lowering springs installed in my car... Had the car aligned but notice that the car drifts off to the right if i accelerate maybe after 3 seconds... Mostly on the freeway... Now its not too over the top..but if i let go of my wheel im definitely drifting... Anyway... I took it back to the guy he makes some changes.. Tries a few different things... pretty much says to try doing a few things and maybe swapping out the front tires from left to right n right to left.. And because my wheels r staggered this might be the reason its happening... Anyway ive decided to give the guy the benefit of the doubt he sounds legit and is highly recomended.. I plan to take it back in 2 weeks if this doesnt fix it...

Since i dont know crap about alignments .. Do u think this is normal ? Anything else i should try .. What u would do? Thanks for any informative input

The grocey getter alignment specifications are the OE alignment specifications which are available on the computer used with to do the alignment. Do you have a quality alignment shop in your area?
