Just wondering if most you guys out there got an alignment after installing lowering springs. Also if the coilover has adjustible ride height, does that mean you need an alignment after time you change the height.

I had my Autoexe springs put in last week and the alignment done yesterday. The front camber was about 0.5 degrees off but there isn't anything that can be done about that - toe in was whacked.

The right rear needed some tweaking too.

So - yes - I would recommend getting an alignment after a 100 miles or so - once the springs settle.

Not sure if this would apply to adjusting the height w/coilovers though.

changing ride height by lowering the car changes just about every alignment adjustment, so yes you should definitely have a 4 wheel alignment done after installing lowering springs.

remember the Mazda6 does not have adjustable front camber so you'll have to live with what it is. you do want to make sure caster and toe in are set correctly.

do the alignment, definitely

as far as coilovers go, you probably aren't going to be changing ride height a great deal so once you have alignment set for your desired ride height you should be ok.
