    it fixes the negative amber and toe that putting in new coils can caus. this should be the end of the discussion get them and then get an alignment and if it doesnt fix it put stock back on and sell em

    ok so your woried about your tires being sorta sideways and getting worn out....corect?

    alignment acording to you and everyone else is to fix the tires to make them straight.still with me????? so if you get an alignment what will happen????GET IT!?

    An alignment consists of parts. (If done by a real shop and not the neighborhood mechanic with a machine from 1954. )

    Toe
    Camber
    Castor

    The toe is which way the tire would be steering. If both are out evenly, the car might still go straight (pulling left/right at the same force) but would cause the tires to wear out. This would simulate skidding sideways with the wheel turned as far as tire wear is concerned. Springs will not affect this adjustment to the same degree new spindles do.

    Camber - this is the "lean" you're talking about. Too much and the top will be out, and too litte the top will be in. This is what will cause the insides or outsides of the tire to wear out. Idealy at drive height you want the tire sitting flat on the surface of the road. Springs will throw this setting out because of the simple way the geometry of the suspension is and where the control arms pivot. It can be adjusted, just not a signifigant amount. 3" drop springs do NOT create anywhere near a signifigant amount of negative camber on S-10s.

    Castor - probably the one thats never corrected but should be. Its the measure of how far front or back the entire wheel is compared to the wheel well. (Actually the distance between the front and back wheels) If the other measurements are all good, this one won't matter as much. Idealy it should be corrected but has little to no effect on tire wear. The only time you'd notice any ride difference is turning. It would pivot slightly different. (you'd never notice it)

    So listen to the guys. Get an alignment from a 1/2 decent shop and you'll be fine.
