Alignment Question!

so i got my sportlines today! HOOOORAAAY!

but because of the kid that i am i really want to install them asap which would be tomorrow, but i understand im gonna need an alignment and i dont have the money to get one...

because of this should i not install my springs until i know for sure i can get an alignment or do the springs NOT throw off the alignment that much to a point were you need one right away.

also how much is it or how much should it be for an alignment?

I put on B&G's which dropped my car lower than the Sportlines and never got an alignment - however I do have the ever so slightest out of alignment, but nothing that is critical. Remember, that was just me though, make sure you install them correctly so you wont have to worry about an alignment.
PICS PICS PICS!!!!!

you installing by your self? or with help. theres a easy way to do the front struts with out using a spring compressor.

all you do is loosen the top strut nut in the middle before you jack the car up. loosen both. then jack the car up remove the tires and remove all the bolts that attach the strut to the car. Make sure you have the jacvk under the wheel hub. dont let that shit drop or ur ****ed. next once u have the jack under the strut lift up the strut a bit so the spring compresses. but just a bit. remove the top bolt thatu loosened. then lower the jack slowly. like that itll drop the spring slowly without it popping out. if you need help with it tomorrow just pm me ok. im always on. good luck
