Hi there, I am looking at getting a small (.75" to 1") front level on my Jeep (coil spacer). One shop is telling me no alignment required after due to solid axle? Can anyone confirm for me if this is correct or not? Thanks in advance!

FWIW, I just had the Teraflex leveling kit installed and was told only a steering wheel centering was required.

Only thing that should change will be you caster, and probably only a decrease of about .75 degrees.

Any increase in height will affect caster and will require recentering of the steering wheel.

When I had the RC 2.5" lift installed, caster definitely dropped (but can't adjust with factory control arms). It appears that Toe also needed to be adjusted in addition to centering the wheel.

2.5" spacer is a bit more than levelling so not sure if the Toe would need similar adjustment?
