Hi Natasha. Thanks for contacting us tonight. Anytime you make an aftermarket adjustment to suspension, you should always make corresponding changes to the steering system as well - as they work together and both impact suspension alignment. It’s best to consult with aftermarket part manufacturers on what they recommend, as we focus only on OEM repairs and service.
