    Need advice (alignment after lowering & strut tower bar)

    So I lowered my Micra on h&r springs and now I need an alignment, but I want to get a strut tower bar, do I get the alignment first or after the bar is installed, and does the Front need to be hoisted to install the bar.

    An upper bar doesn't need the front lifted.

    And you can do it after the alignment. It should drop right on, so it's not changing any geometry - just helps lock it in.

    Did the lowering change the steering wheel angle?

    Or is it a given that it messes with things and needs to be trued up again, regardless?
