Thanks in advance

Will be taking pics soonish I have to slightly disassemble my front struts an put the strut bearings in because I forgot to buy the part like a dumb***

I do have a question for anyone paying attention to this thread.
Got the car alignment done n then realized I forgot the strut bearing now if I slight dissemble the strut to install the bearing is it going to duck the alignment up?

Technically I guess it could but I wouldn't worry about it. It would be very minor if it changed anything. I did something similar got an alignment done and then had to take the struts back out I didn't get a second alignment.

  1. Alignment is literally a smidge weird it's very light shakey around 70+
  2. Forgot to take pictures of the progress but here's a pic of what is pulled out an useable if anyone wants to buy it

A half inch drop has absolutely no change which is nice cause living in New England with the pot holes an speed bumps ECT sucks ?
