    Hi!

    Does lowering springs require any other wheel alignment than Ford factory settings?

    Thanks!

    Best Regards, Per-Anders.

    When doing springs and roll bars, i had the hunter alignment done.. factory set up was out before changing anything, so id say it’s a must.

    I understand that wheel alignment needs to be done, but does the manufacturer of the lowering springs provide/recommends any other settings than Ford?

    No your looking into it way to much. But I would still take the advice given above. Bare minimum get it checked. Getting it checked will also make sure the kit is fitted correctly..

    Smudger068 – Thanks! Yes, of course. I always check alignment after changing any suspension parts…

    @GM what ARB you using? I have the Eibach springs but been waiting on the ARB from Eibach for about a month or so but was thinking of using another brand if they don’t hurry up as want to book track day.

    after looking im concerned picked wrong ARB as rear adjustable on Eibach and others just fixed but I’m sure the guys who will do the install will also know how to set it up to how I want it. Hopefully lol.

    Andy,Good set of results there, cannot beat a good hunter setup.

     

    Get up the road to Oliver’s mount in the lunch break and give it the full beans just for the fun of it.

    Had mine done the other day. Lowered on H&R springs. The front needed correcting as noticed uneven ware on tyres.
