when you lower the suspension you changed the entire geometry of it. i would think your factory alignment specs. would not be correct on a lowered car ?? Any work done to the gear box ? adjust the worm gear ? or worn out rag joint ?

Did you change the motor mounts? Are they in correct or is the engine aligned? Did you replace the entire steering geometry? Is there proper clearance for the wheels and tires? Dropping the front end puts more weight on the suspension. Do you have power steering? New parts there? If you go to a larger motor, you need to replace everything, including the frame cross members. Car makers put in what only is needed for the weight of the manufactured car at the time.
