Rob, got my car back from the dlr and its now aligned like you suggested.

So whats my next Peddler upgrade to improve the stability of the car. This is a 1LE.
JusticePete had mentioned a "permagrin" kit he had for the 1LE. I've pm'd him a couple times to get the details but he must be on holidays.

Glad I found this thread since I know almost nothing about alignment. What kind of alignment would you professionals recommend for a 100% street ZL1 with 900+ rwhp on 20" wheels that's looking for as much straight line traction as possible?

Would love to get a professional recommendation

Pedders Strip in the rear. Factory specs up front.

Thanks a lot for the suggestion, much appreciated.

Any idea if lowering the car (lowering springs) will effect its straight line traction from a roll?

Better late than never?

Lowering increase negative rear camber. The lower you go the higher the negative camber increases. The factory camber adjustment eccentrics have 1 degree of adjustment in them. For straight line power application we want the rear tire to be square to the road or track surface. That means we want to be -0.50 camber. Once you drop your 5th Gen an inch, you'll need the Justice Pete Rear Camber eccentrics with 2.00 degrees of adjustment to get there.

Need alignment help for a car that is mostly driven on the street but will see drag strip 2-3 times a year with 17x28x10 slicks and skinnies. Eibauch Pro 1" lowering springs, BMR Toe rod ends and BMR Trailing arms. 665rwhp, 659rwtq auto with 2800 stall.

This is straight forward.

Front Toe 0.00
Front Total Toe 0.00
Front Camber -1.00
Rear Toe IN +0.12
Rear Toe IN Total Toe +0.24
Rear Camber 0.00 or as close as you can get to 0.00

The only alignment issue you'll face is the range of the OEM Camber Eccentric. The OEM Camber Eccentric is good for 1 degree of adjustment. With you lowered Camaro the best you'll get is -.80. If you use my eXtreme Range Rear Camber Eccentric you'll have 2 degrees of adjustment allowing you to get to 0.00 or very close to 0.00.

Part Number HW-CAM8-R-CAM-ADJ

Anybody have a recommendation for an alignment for a daily driver that drag races at least once to twice a month. Have never autocrossed but hoping to try it soon. So basically something that might be a good all around without extreme tire wear. Oh and I will have the fe4 pedders conversion setup with the pedders zl1 front and rear bars. Oh and I have the pedders rear camber bolts

no, you will be fine, the drawback is the lack of camber in the rear will effect the cornering a bit, but it's not aggressive for the street.
