Camber

I was told recently that the ZL1's camber was set for the track from the factory and that if you were not tracking the car it could be adjusted for daily driving and would extend tire life.
Has anyone confirmed this?

Thanks!

Somewhere is the charts with the specs but the zl1 only has like 1* of stock camber front and I thought a little less in the rear, we are running alot more and have relatively even tire ware

Your best bet here is to actually measure what your car has. Don't count on any particular car being aligned dead-on to Chevy's preferred alignment specs (that's why there is a range of acceptable specs).

Again, this depends on what your own car has for alignment settings and how often and how much harder you take corners than Joe or Jill Average in their grocery-getter sedan. If your car is at factory preferred camber (middle of the range) or less negative than that, I doubt you'd gain much tire life unless you're a really mild driver doing mostly highway driving.
