Alignment after prekey and shackle mod

I may end up getting my pre key mod done by Ford before I get to my shackle mod. Is it okay to get an alignment after doing the pre key mod even though I won't do my shackle mod at the same time? It could be up to a week or a months difference getting my shackles on.

Thanks,

Mike

Yup...you're good. Rear height change of just that small amount won't be enough to effect alignment of the front. Many report no alignment needed after the PreKey install.

I can understand why that's the case because after all it is a Ford part. I do know I did need to have an alignment done on my old dodge because its a true aftermarket leveling kit. I hope Ford has an alignment machine there anyway just to check it and make sure its alright. My brother in law might not be able to do the shackles with me right away. So that's why I was askin bout this alignment thing. I'm going for the 1.5 in the back as well.
