When to get alignment after lowering

I just made a post regarding lowering but i thought i would make a new thread for this topic specifically

I was wondering when the best time to get the car aligned after getting it lowered. I know the springs need to settle first, but should i go ahead and adjust the panhard bar the same day i install the springs or wait until they settle, adjust the bar, and then get an alignment?

What suspension mods are you going to install? Is it a DD? Are you getting camber plates?

The install sheet said to wait two weeks and then get an alignment done. I waited about a month and then got one. As long as you wait a decent amount of time and not get one within the first week, you'll be good.

No, adjust that when you install it. the axle will shift a little with the drop and you can get it centered right off the bat.

I'm not sure if I mentioned this on your other thread but if you have an iPhone I would suggest you get the app called ialign. It will give you a very accurate indication of where you are at before going to the line-up shop.
I've used it for a number of years on my race car trying different caster/camber combinations.

ialign
