    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    Question can i drive a few hundred miles without alignment after Koni install?

    I have to take a 600 mile, round trip TODAY and i can't get the car alligned until like next week. I just put koni's on it. Will i hurt anything without it being alligned?

    more likely than anything else you will wear the outer rim of your tire down really fast, which if it burst wouldn't be much fun. Why didn't the shop align them when they put them on?

    having it aligned, thanks for all the input. Infact, my tie rod was broke so they are replacing that too; i'll just forward that to insurance.

    mad: the shop that installed dosesn't have the means to align.
