Default Quick question: ALK/USR Kit Alignment

I just installed the Whiteline ALK comfort and have an alignment scheduled tomorrow at 10:00am. I also ordered the Unabomber Sexy Rear-end Kit and it got here today (thanks Clint @ TiC!)...so I thought I should do the subframe bolts before then because I would need to get aligned after that as well right?

I don't have time to do the other two sets of bushings so I just wanted to confirm if I can do those during the week without affecting the alignment I get tomorrow. And to confirm I would need to at least do the subframe bolts beforehand.

I have read several threads (thanks to all who posted installs and their experiences, it made this and the steering rack bushings a much easier job), but seemed like opinions were mixed about the need.

Want to make sure I don't do anything to jack the alignment before auto-x this weekend.....w00t, Subiefest!!

+1

The other bushings won't effect your alignment and can be installed afterwards.

Yep, heard that too. I have a pair sitting in the garage waiting for me to finish up the rear end myself. I'm not certain how much the bushings alone will affect the alignment though. If you're not doing any arm bushings and only the diff, then it shouldn't matter. Throw the bolts in and then align.
