do i need an alignment kit to do wheel alignment?
sup guyz... I got Eibach sportline and 17" rims installed.
I took my car to the shop to do wheel alignment, but they said they can't do it becuz car is too low. the beam can't go through whatever... I heard that i need an alignment kit to do wheel alignment. Is that truth?... anyone?

take it to another shop. I have Eibach Sportlines and have had no problem with getting the alignment done. And no, i didn't need any camber kit.

Those guys are 'tards. Go to another shop 'cuz the stock rear camber can be adjusted.

some shops cannot accommodate for lowered cars. Keep shopping around

I was having a hard time like you also. I brought my car one day to this place and they were able to put it on the lift no problem and give me a printout of my bad alignment. This is close to a 2" drop. Just look around. Any place can do it. It's just that some places won't or they will give you an excuse because they don't want to guarantee the alignment in the future on your lowered car in case you have to bring it back.
