Maybe I'm overanalyzing here, but I have a question about getting an alignment with the auto leveling rear shocks. Should the car be running, or at least 'on', when the rear wheels are aligned?
Reason I ask is because I just installed my H&R's and MM spacers and the rear dropped quite significantly, resulting in some pretty serious looking camber. I want to take it to an alignment shop ASAP, but wonder about the Nivomats and their effect on ride height. I don't know how much (or even if) they pump the rear suspension up when I'm driving it, but any ride height adjustment by the Nivomats would have an effect on the alignment geometry, wouldn't it? What'd'ya think?
Nivomats are 100% mechanical, using the energy created by the car's motion to pump themselves up. You should be ready to align as-is, though the best technique is to do it with you in the driver's seat.
