I would assume if they didn't settle all the way then the alignment would be off when they did.

If the place your taking it to get the Alignment done is like most others, their work has warranties behind them. So long as you don't change anything else on the suspension they will keep realigning it and adjusting it free of charge. So I'd take it in and get it done then take it back in and checked in a couple of weeks.

2 wheel alignment...no need for a 4 wheel on a non cobra mustang...only thing that'll really shift on the back end could be the diff...the fix for that is a panhard bar

keeps the rear end centered...sometimes when you lower a car your rear can shift to the left or the right..so this fixes that. it's also a great part to keep the rear centered during hard cornering
