Default Anyone with a body lift - answer this plz

I'm getting a 3" body lift with a 2" levelling kit done on tuesday. Question is: How important is an alignment after you get a BODY lift? (I'm going to get one done for sure, i just want to do it at another shop) So after I get my body lift done, can i drive like 50 or 60 miles without having an alignment?

Any help or thoughts would be appreciated

Kelly

You should be ok for that short a trip. I've seen tires get eaten up in a couple hundred miles with a bad alignment.

You don't need a alignment after a body lift but will for sure want it after the leveling kit body lift doesn't affect the alignment at all.
