Yes, an alignment is required after installation.Great link on the shocks! Some seriously good information there.
It doesn't say whether an alignment is needed afterwards though, but I'm guessing yes?
I just reread your original post and I guess I should have clarified...by lift kit did you mean an actual all the way around suspension lift kit or were you talking about a spacer-type leveling kit? My response was geared towards choosing between the Bilsteins and a spacer leveling kit. Obviously I recommened the Bilsteins hands down. As for an actual lift kit, it really just depends on what you want to do. If you are just looking to level the front, I still recommend the Bilsteins. They are a top-quality product and will level the front safely at a fraction of the cost of an actual suspension lift kit.Thank you for the info. What is your clearance now? But do you know if it will cause the death wobble? Due to being an outdoorsman package?
