Yep, no alignment kit needed. Any good shop will tell you that, same w/ really good driveway mechanics. I've done a few and never needed it, and the infamous Randode has well over 50 spring installs, and I know he's never needed it.
When you guys say alignment kit, are you referring to a camber kit? I was curious because I was thinking of going with the gold Tein springs. I know it's only a 1" drop so it's not that dramatic of a drop, plus the trd springs are not that much of a drop either and I haven't heard of a camber kit being needed. Just wanted to know because I just bought some 17's for my Xb. Don't want to wear out the brand new tires if you know what I mean. And lastly, I've noticed people mentioning that the Monroe shocks and struts are more comfortable than the stock. Will the gold springs be okay with the monroes, or should I look for shocks/struts that are meant for lowering springs?
