i went to a shop before i'm putting them on, and the mechanic told me like uh the car might be slanted? if i put the lowered springs with the stock shocks, and he also said something about alignment... is there really gonna have this problem with stock shocks? with the car being slanted towards one side.... and also another question, there are 2 screws missing on the fender and the bottom(front bumper), and it looks so ugly so i want to get the screws, do they have those at dealerships or just in general places like autozone?

Stock shocks will wear out quicker. Yes, you may need an alignment done after putting new springs on.

If you lower more than an inch, you should replace the shocks with Konis. My mechanic even told me that. You need to align after you put new springs on as well. I am going to ride the stock shocks out and replace them with Konis for Xmas next year hopefully. ;)

The car wont be slanted, however since the springs are new they will "settle." They will settle faster where there is more weight, so you may notice the driverside looking a bit lower until all 4 corners have settled. Unless of course you have passengers on a regular basis.
