    No need for alignment at this time. Yes my old ones were not ready to be replaced until 8 months later so I had to deal with the noise. After i do the front shocks and ball joints I will get an alignment. I'm still deciding if I'm keeping my lowering springs or go back to OEM's on the front.

    I was looking for a mod that Tater sent me on a PM about cutting the top of the shock mount whenyou use regular shocks with lowering springs. i remember seeing that you cut it out with a band saw and then put the piece of spacer on top. that alowed the shock to set normal. I lost my PM's when we got the new site. I might have to PM tater about that mod link when I'm ready to do the shocks.

    Im hoping that the front shock nut comes out easy... I have to figure out how to replace the lower ball joints since they are pressed.

    lol cheapest tire I could find at the time, I had just gotten into college, had no job, and had spent a ton on tuition/moving my stuff/etcetc, I needed tires and wanted to spend as little as possible. now that I'm more financially stable and have some new wider wheels, I'll be getting some higher quality Continentals/Goodyears/Michelins when the time comes (about 10k miles)

    hey man i understand im not trying to say they suck(which they do) but you have to do what you have to do to keep the car running. It took me a while to invest almost $850 for 4 michellins pilot AS(say goodbye to buying my ar15). So far I like them and have solved my issue with vibration noise. I had a couple of shops tell me that i had a bent wheel. R tards...

    I was going to get Bf goodrichs but I kept reading reviews that they dont last long. I'm going to see how long these michelins last. Im not doing any racing on them just driving. They say they are 45k tires but I doubt that.
