Hey guys-

I've been searching for the alignment specs for a drop on the eibach pro-kit, but haven't been able to find them. Does anybody know what they are? I figured it would be out there since lexus sold them as part of the l-tuned package. I want to be able to take them to the shop, as i'm sure that they've never worked on an IS before mine.

I got my car lowered, and aligned. The shop said that everything went well, but now i have serious wear on my driver front tire on the outside edge. I can only imagine that the springs have settled more and now my alignment is bad (or the shop did a poor job, which is possible).

Any help finding the specs would be much appreciated. Big +rep for anybody who comes through. My car is a 2002, stock rims and suspension and all. And i know that I should find a different shop, but just bear with me. Thanks.

With the pro-kit you should be able to get the alignment back to stock specs. Sounds like the springs may have settled and or the shop did not do a good job like you said. I have an alignment spec sheet at home. PM me with your email and I can send it to you later on today if you would like.

I'm dropped on the Prokit with stock shocks and it's fine. Did an alignment with the drop and then another one like 2 months later. No abnormal wear on the tires thus far. Maybe just get another alignment at another shop? Goodluck!

Sounds like too much toe. What are your specs at? You have your alignment spec sheet right? Anything is red on there in the 'After' column? If so, how far out of spec are you.

I have the Pro-Kit on my car and my alignment guy got me right back to factory specs. Still have the OEM tires with 20K miles on them and they still have 65%+ tread life left.

That's what I was thinking, problem is that I never got a spec sheet from them. Didn't even think about it until a couple days after i got the car back. I've got the factory specs, so I'll just have to compare i guess when i get it back.

Only sucks because i still have a lot of tread, but gotta junk the set now. Guess i'll just suit up for winter early. Eh, i've had too many tire issues...

They must have done a poor alignment job or didn't do one at all. When you do get your car aligned again go to a specialist that actually gives you a spec sheet. If your car was way off, then the shop that did your spring install didn't do the alignment.

Good luck!
