help dsc malfunction after coilover install

Hello all and happy holidays and a happy new year.

i encounter a problem after the coilover install. I drove the car for 5 minutes

and the dsc malfunction popped up and wouldnt go away. The steering is

also out of whack its turned to the left by 30 degrees or so. I have sonic

tuning s3 coilovers installed. Any advice or help is greatly appreciated. If any

pics are needed please lmk.

This sucks I was planning a little road trip to enjoy the coilovers a little bit.

You're most likely getting the dsc error because your alignment is so far out of whack. Wait a few days til they settle a bit and get a propper alignment. Should fix it right away as long as nothing was damaged during the install.

If your steering is cocked your alignment is probably very far out of whack and that may be setting off the DSC.

Damn who was the installer? There should be a slight alignment issue but not to the point of 30 degrees...

Send me a PM, I own a shop that does alignments and other car stuff, just not a vendor on here (we are primarily a Subaru shop) but have done work on BMWs before.
