Coilover question

Question I have is, I install coilovers and I assume I will need an alignment. I get said alignemt for a 1" drop. I then decide to drop 1.5", would I need another aligment? If I go to 2.0", another alignment? If I go back up to 1.0" another?

Cheers

Simply... yes, if you want to maintain the EXACT alignment specs after each drop.

As stated, yes you will to keep the exact settings.

But the changes will be minor from a 1" to 1.5" drop. So I wouldn't worry too much about it.

That is correct. You should have an alignment done to keep the specs right and prevent premature tire wear and optimum performance and handling.
