Exclamation Lowered 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. Stuts, shocks and ball joints are factory.

I am thinking that the stock struts will not work with add on adjustable camber/caster plates. Also you should not use the stock struts and shocks with lowering springs. Have you replaced the upper and lower control arms. In certain cases, if you do not realign the pinion angle, there is a likely chance of damaging your differential.

I don't think a 1.5 drop is going to do anything to crazy to his car. Certainly a panhard bar, LCA, LCA relocation brackets and adjustable UCA are recommended. However, there have been plenty of people that just go the spring/panhard bar route on here without issue with a 1.5 or less drop. I think Dan from AM has the SR springs with stock struts and no issues.

I'm wondering if the CC plates are coming loose over time and slipping?

I am thinking the main issue is that the factory struts are not meant to work with cc plates. When I inquired about the new Koni struts for my 13, I was told to go with the 05-10 struts if I used the cc plates.
