I am wanting to lower my 6. When I mentioned lowering to my girlfriend's dad who owns a tire shop he said that it wasn't a good idea. He told me that sometimes if you lower the car the camber adjustment can't compensate for the drop and it essentially makes your car unable to be aligned. If I went for a moderate drop with the mazdaspeed hatch springs or the tein h-techs would the alignment still be possible? I know about the spc adjustable ball joints but I really couldn't afford those along with the springs and the Bilsteins I just bought.

he is right. but the vast majority of cars can get an alignment after being lowered. just get a alignment after you lower it. it wont be a problem at all. im extremely low, and they had no issues getting my alignment spot on.

Agree with xxxmonoxidechild. Even with the Eibach springs, which typically is a lower drop than the ones you've mentioned, you shouldn't have a problem with getting an alignment close to factory spec.

What about bc coils with a substantial drop? And is an alignment recommended after a drop? I'm assuming that the answer is a yes.
