Tein? Mixing suspension brands sounds like a wonderful idea. Any idea if the specs are even remotely close?

And yes, get an alignment.

How low r u cuz if u did not do your research u will find out the hard way but if it's the hellaflush look u r going for then u will need adjustable lateral links in the rear for sure. Depending what yr your suby is will depend also on adjustable top hats for front and possibly for the rears if your suby believe if it before 2008. Also camber bolts r a cheap option but if not installed correctly can cause major issues.

First and for most before u do anything use the search button its your friend hope this helps.
