I'm guessing you didn't read the post?
" I checked the alignment and it had not changed from stock - no reason for it to, since I did not lower the car and change the suspension geometry.
A performance shop in our area did the modification work. They put the car on their alignment system after the work and the alignment was well within the stock specifications. They made no adjustments. Checking the alignment, after working on the suspension, is a very good idea.
