Need adjustment after every coilover adjustment?

I'm looking to get a set of coil-overs, but I can't find a definitive answer whether or not one needs to get an alignment after every raise/drop.

Just doing summer/winter modes will cost you ~$200 in alignments if this is the case.

Can anybody give some advice?

Once ur dropped, you won't bring it back up for winter. Every year I say I will raise it back for winter, but then I'm always like "challenge accepted" and braved the winter slammed!

If you adjust your height under an inch after your initial install and alignment, you probably won’t need to have it done again. However it depends on the car, coilover, and setup.

We don't get snow often, so I don't see the huge need to raise and lower it. And when it does snow give me a call so you can plow my driveway with your car haha.

If you want to do it right, get an alignment after your adjustments. But in the end, it depends on your car, extremity of changes, your application/use and how much you really care.
