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.

when you did the installation did you removed the inner 21mm nut and bolt to access the spring and shock in the rear? I am pretty sure your alignment is out of whack that's why it's malfunctioning and if you did messed with that inner nut and bolt and didn't mark it when you put it back, that will screw up your alignment really bad.

At this point you really don't have a whole lot of options other than bringing it to an alignment shop.

I would not risk it! Worse comes to worse is get another alignment later on after it's settled.
