Same with my Sportlines... drop is pretty much the exact same 3 1/2 weeks later. Went ahead and got my alignment done after the second week since I saw there wasn't much more settling going on.

If they keep their system up to date. Some of them may tell you that they don't have the specs for the GC in their system.

Yea,
Just let em know that you had your car lowered and you'd like an aligment done. Mine was put pretty much back to stock specs. And believe it or not, my alignment was done by the suspension shop at a local Ford Dealership. $89 + tax.

4 wheel aligment

No problems going up ramps. I have a hard time using the four point lifts in our hobby shop on base. I have to use the drive on lift. Other than that, I don't really scrap on anything.

FYI

From: Eibach Singapore

F.A.Q. For Eibach Suspension Products

4. When Eibach suspension springs are fitted, will the car sit at the correct ride height or will it need time to settle?
All Eibach suspension coils are pre-set to eliminate settling and increase life expectancy. Some minimal settling may occur as the new spring mates up to an existing rubber suspension isolator, this is normal, but is not the same as a poorly produced spring which may take a set and effect the ride height, handling and alignment of the vehicle.

The custom shop that did the labor and does custom suspension work on cars costing 5 times what my coupe did said the same thing Eibach says and recommended it be done right away to keep from possibly damaging suspension parts and wearing the tires.

I had my car aligned right after the springs were installed.
They took it straight to the alignment shop for me when they were done and had it aligned.
I picked it up and it was done.

I measured the lowering with a level and it hasn't changed.

I don't know if anyone has actually measured the difference from day one to two weeks later to prove that their springs have settled but I've had mine done for over a month now and they haven't changed a lick.

Depending on where I park, an incline, slight hillside, etc., they sometimes look lower and sometimes higher, but on flat ground they are the same height as when I picked the car up.

I know some people will hate on me and disagree but rulers don't lie.

And another FYI the real difference in the drop between the sportlines and Pro Kit is 3/8ths of an inch, that's it.

The tires you choose will make more of a difference in the look than that; and even the fender gap.

Anyway, my two cents is get it aligned immediately.

I personally don't see the point because unless you got camber bolts the camber isn't adjustable anyway.

And all I can tell you is that the drop on my car hasn't changed since the day I had the springs installed.

That's just my opinion and like noses, everyone has one!
