Thanks for the replies. The shop that did the alignment is my local Chevy dealership. I am going to give them a call and see if they can adjust the camber a little more.

I know this isn't related to the thread but any chance you could post some pictures of the hood and fenders. I love the black hood on the orange car I want to do this but can't convince the wife on how awesome this looks, I think if she would see it it would help.

I'm surprised, because on my car with -0.9, tires aren't tucked under the fenders.



(Don't look at rear wheels, it's fixed now)

Well I feel a little better now that I see yours. I think this is the norm for our cars. I just don't see why Chevy would allow the wheels to hang out. Adjust the freaking offset so that they sit like the rear wheels. The new Z28 is going to have 11" wheels in the front. I bet they don't hang out!

Tell me about it.

The Z28 has fender extensions so this doesn't happen as bad, but I bet they still stick out.

GM had to make sure there more than plenty of clearance for camber adjustment.
