    i am going to get my DSS Drive shaft and Nitto 305/35/20 DR install on the rear this weekend.

    Do i need to do wheel alignment as well?
    does the DR change the right height of the car to a point that wheel alignment is needed?

    Thanks guys!!

    No, changing the rear tires will not affect the alignment, no worries, just go out and have fun!!

    Good upgrades should feel the difference, no alignment is needed.

    Yup... Bolt em on and go... no affect on alignment... just double check clearances as there can be subtle differences between cars. I haven't heard of anyone having issues with the 305's on stock wheels... DS can get close to the exhaust. ;)

    If you're doing it yourself you don't need to remove the exhaust. Just loosen the front clamps and unbolt the rear and mid hangers and unplug the exhaust servos.
    The front bolts can be a ***** to get out because of all of the loc tite and limited space to work in.
    You will need a very short allen socket to tighten the new front bolts with a torque wrench. I cut an 8mm x 3/8 drive socket down to make a stubby that would fit.
    I also cut a 10mm one down for the large flange bolts in the rear.
    Don't forget to put sealant on the front flange.
    Also don't forget to put it into neutral before you lift the car.
    Taking my time it took about 3 hours, and that included painting my rear rotor hats black.
