t-bar question

Is it necessary to get an alignment or anything in that such matter after cranking the t-bars? I tried searching for it but couldnt find a solid answer

yes. its a good idea to do it soon after you crank them.

alright thanks. So you basically need to get an alignment? unless you want to be driving around un aligned?

Yes. When you turn them out it basically moves all of your steering geometry out of whack. Make sure you take it to someone good. I have had mine aligned 4 times and it still isnt right.

yeah pretty much. i went a long time with out an alignment after i put my coil spring spacers and ball joints in and it never hurt anything. you could look at it and tell it was WAY out out alignment though.

but my point is you dont have to do it right away so dont worry about it if you dont get it done right after. even though sooner is better.
