Car needing alignment during or shortly after springs settle?

Okay guys, I've checked out some old and dusty threads and have found that you needed to wait 2 weeks after getting ur car dropped to have a wheel alignment. Now is this only if you get new rims? I still have my GTS 16s and am dropping it with TRDs Performance springs (not the coilovers).

Also, the shop was telling me that the Stock struts have to be removed as well?? So does this mean that I have to get some Performance struts to replace the stock ones when I do the drop?

No you do not have to get Performance struts yet. It would eb a good idea because your stock struts were not intended for this type of use and will eventually wear out. It is a good idea to let the springs settle before you get an alignment. If you do it too quick it may be out of whack when everything settles and no point in paying double.

Agree! Stock struts will go fast let me tell you! Just give it some time then get the alignment.
