Oh yeah, that's understandable. I don't mind having it aligned one time, I was/am concerned that it would cause issues over time. I need to get as much life as I can out of my tires. By the way crice8, did you happen to actually measure how much it lowered your car? As bad as I want the improved look and handling, I am a little worried about "obstacles" in the road. Plus my drive way is rather steep. I only have about 4 inches of clearance with the front bumper now. As you probably can tell, I struggle between wanting to mod the car and retain its daily driveability.

I agree. The FRPP kit is very drivable everyday. My friend has it for his 06 and I'm on H&R coilovers and it's very stiff. Me and my wife is use to the suspension but others think its too harsh for everyday

Installed the kit last night and had it alined today at Sears with no issues. Have not driven much yet, but feels (and looks) awesome. One very noticeable difference that I did not expect is that the front end does not dive when you shift. So far I'm diggin' it. By the way, the front end only dropped .5 inches while the rear dropped the advertised 1.5. I like it that way because I was concerned about front bumper clearance.
