Enjoy!
Nice! Thank you much sir! Quick question, those look like the stock wheels, what size are they? I was guessing 17" but just wanted to verify. Planning to go with a 33" tire after the kit is on.

Without a doubt you need an alignment when installing any kit because your removing the struts & they may move causing the alignment (especially the camber) out of spec.
