IS220D Lowering Springs, do I need an alignment afterwards?

Recommended Posts

Hello guys, 

I am looking to purchase a set of Eibach Pro Kit Lowering Springs for my '08 IS220d and I was wondering if I need to take the car to a shop to re-do the alignment afterwards.

Yes, always recommend a full geometry check/adjustment after lowering. 

Make sure they do the full four wheel measurement

Absolutely. A full geo is essential.

Look for a garage which does Hunter laser alignments. They’re very good and set everything up relative to the thrust angle of the car. Expect it to take an hour maybe slightly longer, and cost around £80-100. It’s worth it. The garage may even ask you if you want the car setting up for motorway driving, fast road, track etc. When I had my ISF sorted, they weighed down the driver’s seat so the car was set up perfectly for me driving it! 

Don’t get a Kwik-Fit £30 ‘alignment’, they’re pointless.
