How long will it take for spring to settle?

    Long story but I'll try to make it short as possible. Currently my baby is in the shop being painted all which stems from the free car wash. Which case it has now been two weeks since I've driven her (I call her black butter, BB). BB has had her 1/2 ISO thermal motordyn spacer put on so she can exhale when she needs to. I bought her some new shoes as well; ADR 20" Black sterlings, and some H&R springs for when she is out on the town strutting her stuff. I can say she is the first beauty on Guam to be modded to this extent thus far.

    Any way my question is this, BB's springs have been on for about 6 or 7 days, her steering wheel was replaced b/c of peeling. So tomorrow the body shop will deliver my sexy girl to the dealer and they do an alignment. BB has not been driven much, b/c she's been back and forth between the dealership and BS. So how long will it normally take for springs to settle? Once I get my baby back will I need to have her re-aligned after a few weeks of driving her around or will she be good with the alignment she'll receive tomorrow? Should I still keep an eye on her camber/abnormal tire ware to be on the safe side over the next couple of weeks. Any opinion you have is welcome. I just don't want to have worry about BB getting a second alignment so soon especially when she is getting this done for free.

    I think you'll be fine with this first alignment. It'll settle more but the main thing is to get the alignment done after components have been disassembled and bolted back together.

    The H&Rs are great all around springs. If you were to want it a little lower, we experimented with a little cut in the front and we also shaved down the rear bumps stop to get an even drop all around. ;)
