So my steering wheel is off center, and I've yet to get an alignment with my H-techs installed.

So pretty much I need to get an alignment done. What should I tell the shop that does it? Should I let them know how much lower I am?

i had mine done.. just tell them that's it lowered and they will let you know how much more info they will need. some places will have no problem doing it... some will.

Most shops will put your specs within factory, even if lowered.

And most shops will customize your specs to the driving style you prefer or the set-up you have.

For instance, my shop has set-up my specs w/ a different toe because of my camber.

Same as squirrel here. But, if your wheel is off center, make sure you specifically ask them to center the wheel up. It's not nec. to get it within spec and a lot of people won't even check unless you ask them to.

You should be able to remove the steering wheel and put it back on with the correct line up. There is a thread in here on removing and replacing it. If the Box drives straight I would just do the steering wheel. my .02

The TOE may be off also, and cause increased tread wear.

I would rather spend $60 for an alignment than $300+ for tires.
