    Any place that does alignments is fine.

    i have heard that you have to wait before the alignment to allow enough time to the springs to find their position (sort of)

    wait about a week and a half, and then go get your alignment.

    meh, the wife has to work that Saturday down here at the shop so I might as well install my springs. I have not had stock height cars for very long and Im itching to have a lowered car again. I have ALWAYS had modified suspension cars. My first car was lowered when I got it and I lowered it more. So I had this one stock a week before the body shop, thats long enough.

    I've unstuck this thread. If someone can point me to a better spring install thread, I'll stick it. Or, as appears to be about to happen, generate a new spring install thread with pics, send me a pm about it, and I'll stick it.
