you don't need it...but it is recomended frankie......it shouldn't be that much anyways, so why not........

I'm finally gettin my alignment after almost 2 years being dropped, so thats proof that you will be ok without one.

Just make sure you give yourself at least a week after installing the springs before you align your car.
i made this mistake with my previous car. you have to allow the springs to settle otherwise they'll wear out fast

I would do it

You don't *have* to do it, but why
be cheap? treat your bimmer nice and
it will treat you nicer.

unless the drop is 1/16 inch, first come
to mind is the
camber will be more negative.

When I installed my ACS
springs (1.25 front, 1 rear), I did it.
The print out from the alignment
machine showed more than just
camber differences.

i'm on OEM intake. lol, waiting for warranty to be over.

that sound a bit on the expensive side.

Over here, 100 for lower, DIY intake (30 at most), 70 for alignment.
