It is critical. The bushings will act as springs if they are deflected, as they would be if you install drop coils.

You guys are dead nuts on. Thank you. I also noticed we need to update that thread with the newest OEM and Pedders alignment specs.

Here are the newest FE2, FE3, FE4 and FE5 OEM and Pedders Alignment Specs.

Bush Timing

Step 1. Lift the car on a two post lift and raise it.

Step 2. Loosen the following bolts/nuts:
---Inner Control Arm Bushing
---Inner Radius Rod
---Trailing Arm Bushings (both ends)
---Toe Rod Bushings (both ends)
---Lower Control Arm Bushings (Inner)
---Upper Control Arm Bushings (Rearward)
---Lower Strut Bushings

Step 3.
Lower the car and drive it around the parking lot SLOWLY and on to the alignment lift.

Step 4.
With the weight of the car on the wheels tighten all of the nuts/bolts to spec.

Step 5.
Align the car at the new ride height.
