      Personally, I do not find it worth the cost of dismount/mount/balance,

      just front to back, back to front on same side each time.

      You should not need to adjust the headlights after lowering the suspension. If they're not leveling correctly, check both headlight leveling suspension sensors for damage, or possibly flipped.
