Wheel alignment in AL

Hey guys. I recently moved and I just got a '14 GT. I am thinking of lowering it 1.5" in the front and 2" in the rear.

I wanted to see if anyone knew of a good place to bring it for alignment near Birmingham that specializes in lowered cars. Any advice would be very helpful. Thanks!

If you cant find a shop that specializes these cars are basic to align. If you want a street performance type alignment go with -1.5 to -2.0 in camber and toe in about 1mm. If you have camber castor plates installed set the caster as far positive that you can same both sides probably around+7 is all you can get. Any alignment shop should be able to dial in those numbers.

Ok. Gotcha. I ended up getting camber bolts for the front since it isn't a drastic drop and a panhard rod for the rear. Hopefully those will help keep it close to where it needs to be after its lowered. Do you think somewhere like Kauffman, etc would be able to get it in the range that it needs to be in?
I'm putting new tires on it at the same time, so I want to try to not kill them before I get to break them in if at all possible.

Any shop should be able to get you there. With the camber bolts you won't be able to adjust caster so even easier.
