DO I need adjustable endlinks?

Seeing the other thread below referencing endlinks, I had an "oh crap" moment. I had a shop install ST V1 on my ride a couple of weeks ago. Those did not come adjustable endlinks I don't think and when I threw spacers on it last week I did not even think to take a look. Do I need them? Do all coilover installs that lower the car need them? I had sport suspension and lowered the car maybe 3/4" from the sport height. Also, my car seems to have held its alignment well but I was going to get it re-aligned anyway. A reputable indy shop just told me a need adjustable plates to get the alignment right, the factory does not adjust enough to compensate? Anyone have problems with getting a proper alignment?

The indy shop might be referring to your camber up front by recommending camber plates in order to get them both evenly matched. As for adjustable front sway end links, you can't go wrong with either one:

Thanks, I'll look into them. This aspect of the car is new to me. The sway bar must be in a WAY different location with the factory link still in place.
