what alignment are you using and how do you like itt

Ok so after lowering my car and doing zl1 swaybars my car is going in for an alignment this afternoon. I've searched and found a few buy just wondering how people like what they have. My car is not a DD and does a few autox events and road courses this year. Was looking at bmr performance or pedders? Street/track .

Since your car does a handful of autox and road course events and is not your DD our BMR "pro" performance alignment specs would honestly work real well for you. The "pro" performance alignment specs are designed for people willing to sacrifice a little tire wear for handling and performance.

I'd run a combination of street and track for your application. I'd set the alignment as the follows:

Front
-1.2* to -1.4* -1/16" to 0" total toe

Rear
-0.8* to -1.0* -1/16" to 0" total toe

If it we're me personally I'd run at the more aggressive end of that spectrum. Please feel free to call, email or PM me anytime with questions.

Kind regards,

Do you have all of the stock bushings in the car still, or have you updated some/all of them?

Excellent question. One size does not fit all. I found that a street alignment worked better than an aggressive alignment. On straights and mild curves I had less traction that just made the car feel too loose. I drive short tracks so I'm going back to my original setup. I run a pfadt stage 5 with pss 285/35-20 on all fours.

Sorry I was away with work

I have all stock bushings at the moment. That is this winters project.

I ended up close to what JDP said.
Front tires are at -1.4* and rear is at -1.0* Total Toe is -1/16"

Shop that did it was awesome and had all brand new equipment. I have my first Auto X in two weeks so I can not wait that is if my motor work is done in time.

It handles awesome, It is amazing how much and alignment spec can make in corners. I never realized it before.

Thanks for all your help
