I've seen mixed opinions. Forums usually say do it a week later, dealer says do it right away. I am going with Driver Gear springs with stock shocks (MKV GTI), so not a huge drop or anything. What's the best option here?
The whole issue is to have the car settled into the suspension. I've heard two trains of thought on this.
1. If the car isn't actively driven a lot (less than 100km daily) then give the car 24-48 hours to settle.
2. If the car is driven daily (over 100km) then it's safe to do the following day after some driving.
I've never done a lowering and alignment in a single day, but I have performed both step 1 and 2 in different cars....and it hasn't been an issue.
