Alignment

I know That once you put springs on our cars we need an alignment. Same goes for coilovers, correct me if im wrong. Since coilovers are adjustable you can adjust you ride height at ur disposal. Does this mean every time you adjust your ride height you'll need an alignment???

thats a very good question, I myself was wondering that as well since I'm installing my coilovers in April. I could find out at work, if it hasn't been answered by Monday night on here,I'll post what I find out at work

My springs have been on for over a year and never needed an alignment.

Rule of thumb is any big drop you should get an alignment. I have coilovers on my integra and got an alignment when i first dropped it because it was a huge difference. I adjust it every winter about an inch higher but not enough to require a re-alignment.
