I'm going to be getting Belltech Lowering Spindles for my '98 S-10 ZQ8 and I was wondering if you need to have an alignment after you're all done adding the spindles. I figured since it's not changing anything geometrically, an alignment might not be needed... Anybody help?

OH yea...you will need an alignment...you will be able to see your tires pointing different directions just by looking at them...

Yea it needs to be aligned... if you can there is a way to eyeball it and adjust the tie rod ends so it's more driveable. The guy that did mine was able to do that for me. Only thing is I paid 85 bucks for the alignment cause most places by me don't align lowered vehicles cause it's no longer stock specs or something. But for 85 bucks it came out perfect. Most places charge around 50 though

i paid 85 for mine. you can get it close enough o drive but it takes some time. you just have adjust the tie rod sleeve. then measure the distance between the front tires from the back of the rim and from the front of the rim. it should be pretty close. this is how my grandfather told me to do it anyway and it worked pretty well. the guy said it was close but he still charged an arm and a leg because it is a lowrider.

or see if the alignment shop could install the spindles for you. Few of my good buddies work at a goodyear service center. They installed a guy's spindles for next to nothing since he paid full price for the alignment (pretty expensive)
