Exclamation 13 v6 alignment problems

This is a long shot but I was wondering if anybody else has had this problem. The car has been lowered with SR performance lowering springs and j&m adjustable camber caster plates. It has been lowered for about 3.5 months and I have had to have it re aligned 4 times now because the toe keeps getting out. Blows my mind! If anybody has run into this problem any advice would be awsome.


P.S. Struts, shocks and ball joints are factory.

Possibly you need an adjustable pan hard bar. I think one of the more experienced members may be able to chime in on this one.

I think a bump steer kit will solve your problem.

I installed a J&m steel adjustable pan hard bar when i lowered it. Rear end is centered. Im gunna try the bump steer kit and see if that fixes my problem.

Sounds to me like ur camber/caster plates keep loosening up. Make sure they are torqued correctly and maybe use some blue loctite if u don't adjust often.
Panhard or bumpsteer kit won't help this issue.

Caster/camber plates shouldn't affect toe alignment. That's the tie rod ends. I agree that a bumpsteer kit may solve his problems.

They are tight and they haven't come loose.

I ordered Steeda heavy duty strut mounts and a Steeda bump steer kit. And the maximum motorsports bump steer gauge kit.

After I lowered it my toe angle was a little off and I was getting a popping type sound when turning. After installing the kit I had no more issues. I also installed a maximum motorsports adjustable caster/camber kit.

I installed h&r ss springs so it wasn't all that much however the shop that did it I began to question their work after they explained how they pulled the front springs out. They also had difficulty aligning it so I took it to another local shop and they were able to take care of it no problem. There probably wasn't even an issue just an incompetent shop.
