Massive
 
My car is in need of an alignment for sure, tires in front and rear alll out of alignment its visible. However, soon I will be adding Massive Control Arms, Massive Camber/Toe Arms. and Progress 25mm Suspension kit. Should I just wait for my alignment, also does anyone have pictures of these items installed, id love to see what kind of look they add to the car.

thanks

I'd wait to install the parts if your tires are already toast. Then get the alignment. Pics might be in the Massive vender section.

I would get it done before you get all the stuff replaced, but only at places that offer a warranty on their alignments. That way you'll be able to get it done now, and free later.

You dont think changing the items will throw the alignment off though?

It will throw your alignment off. Thats why i said go somewhere that has a warranty on their alignments. That way when you install all your new parts you can get it re-aligned free.

You will find it is so much easier to set the rear toe w/ toe-link's. I added Dom's rear chassis brace & toe link's, & Eibach's sportline system last saturday. I just set the rear toe, w/ the stock adjustment to about 0.18 or so on each side, then twist the toe-link's to dial in 0.10 to each side. I found it so much faster, then the stock cam bolt's. It would take me about 15-20 minutes dialing in the rear toe w/ the stock adjustment's, even w/ the bay door's closed, to keep the wind out. I'm not one set w/ in the green and call it good. So add the part's 1st, then align!

I installed all my parts and then went in for an alignment and then later on added the adjustable rear toe arms and control arms and ended up having to get another alignment after that .

So to save you some funds , I would get all your stuff put it on at 1 time and then have your alignment done .

I add all the part's you have the align it. I just rechecked my alignment today after work, & came up w/ -1.7 camber/ -.02 toe for the front/ -1.4LR/-1.6RR/ .11/.11 toe in/ thrust angle= .00. I don't have any camber adjustment for the rear, bolt's/arm's. I was going to adjust the front camber, but I left it where it was. I replaced the FRPP's spring's/strut's/shock's w/ Eibach's sportline system=spring's/damper's & added Dom's toe-link's & rear chassis brace, at the same time. Awesome they came w/ in a day apart, great huh.

Are those toe numbers degrees or inches? Camber is actually pretty good and I wouldn't mess with those settings especially if it's a daily driver.
