Ok, gonna throw this out there for guidance. 2014 1LE, no suspension changes other than Pedders 220035's on the rear. Brought the rear down about 1/2 inch and leveled the car. Now, the alignment question. I primarilyl use the car for autox, no track days or hpde events currently. I'm seeing wear and pretty good wear at that on the outer edges. I know I need to adjust camber, but want to do so with street use still in mind. Thoughts on good numbers to start with and then expand after hitting another autox event this coming weekend? I am running a true square setup for autox, 20x10's all the way around with the stock size goodyears.
Thanks.

Thanks Pete. I know my issue is different from others as we only changed the height in the rear vs all around. Car looks fantastic, now just want to take advantage of that look.

No daily. Just weekend cruises and I will be driving an add'l 1,000 miles to two events coming up. Only one with autox, which is LSFest in KY. That's a 700 mile round trip

Cool, we can be a bit more aggressive on the front camber.

Front Camber -1.25
Front Toe 0.00
Rear Camber as close to 0.50 as the tech can get it.
Rear Toe IN 0.12
Tear Total Toe IN 0.24

I really, really hope it's intended to be 'negative'.

Positive rear camber is the kind of crutch you use to make heavily understeering FWD cars think they want to turn.
