Did you have to do alignment after every upgrade?

Not with the stock style strut mounts because there's not really any adjustment there. Only the toe, which needs to be set when you install the springs.

But you certainly could align it again after the struts. I didn't.

That's a long time lol. They would probably never last that long in my city with these roads. How was the ride quality?

Ride quality was fine. Running lowering springs on stock dampeners makes the suspension oscillate quickly, but it's not a problem. It just works better on upgraded shocks & struts.

I heard reviews from people that the springs would make it feel crappy because they werent paired with the proper dampeners so that kinda talked me out of only getting springs.

The thing is, "crappy" is subjective. Can you lower on springs only? Yep. Do I recommend it? Nope.

I daily drive on Koni Yellows.
