    The theory on this I read is no as you’re not adjusting anything to do with Heel / Toe etc… That said I got mine done after lowering the car (within 24 hours of the springs going on) and it was out marginally.

    I used national to do the work as they guarantee it for a while after and the service it top. They also have a half price offer for it on their website…

    I would normally say no, as there is really no reason, i.e. the tracking shouldnt have changed.

    However, for the cost of getting the tracking checked, it could save you premature wear on your tyres. Do you know when it was last tracked? Hit many curbs, pot holes or speed bumps??

    Yes best to get checked after about 2 weeks
    As your lowering it so camber adjustment will be out.

    And as for toe check it's good to check it checked anyway
