Installed 17/59 Springs and Alignment Results

So given that I just put on brand new Duratracs to the tune of $1K OTD, I decided that I'll pay the $75 or whatever to have a 4 wheel alignment done. I don't have starting values but will post the results here as well as any adjustments that are made. Hopefully this will give people here some real world info on whether it is necessary to pay for an alignment after a spring swap. :-)

Ah - so is it not worth doing then? I ended up with about 1.25" rear and 1.5" front with the spring swap. I'm pleased and the ride is more settled on the rural roads I spend a lot of time on.
