Scotty you may need to let the springs an all settle before you do an alignment, if you dont want to wait then get the alignment done down at ASI, in Charlotte next weekend...

Good point Mike...but, the springs on the rear went on right after Christmas. The shock adjustment yesterday was simply that...do you think I need to let that settle prior to alignment?

I wish I could have made it. Unfortunately, the next event I can make will probably be the show in April.

scotty, i would say that the fronts are ok too...the springs are and have already been beat up. they have been offroad and had full compression and extension...adding just the shocks will not make a difference...id say get it done ...see if you can get Brian at ASI in Charlotte to pencil you in on the meet day...ill tell you that my shocks..have yet to drop at all...still at the height that they were at when i installed them..tough Buh-tox springs...LOL

I won't be making it to the Charlotte meet. Cindy and I are headed to Nashville for a long weekend...early anniversary. I have a local mechanic I have used for like 17 years. He always takes good care of me and gives me a break on costs.

I just cannot believe any of this happened... until I see some pics! Sounds like some great work was done though.

It's true...but I regret to say we did not take pictures. Andy and I were covered in dirt and grease from 8:30 till about 4:00.
