    Need more alignment talk!!!

    How often would you recommend getting a alignment done. I saw mention of getting a alignment after every time you swap tires, but this seems excessive. So I thought I'd ask the alignment god what he thought and recommends.

    every tire swap- no way; racing autocross that would be a lot of alignments

    every major suspension swap for sure-springs/struts/control arms and the like (no need on swaybars)

    also alignments will sometimes go awry- so if if it's driving funny or you're getting unusual tire wear- have it checked

    Lol would you imagine needing to do a alignment at the event after mounting race tires.

    So if nothing feels or looks wrong would you think it would be safe to do every 2 years? Or would you do it before every autox season?

    I typically get it checked before each season (and when I do a suspension change), sometimes the alignment is spot on and nothing needs to be adjusted, but usually there are minor adjustments to be made
