2010 camaro RS wheel alignment

I have a 2010 Camaro LT2 RS, and I went to my local service station to get a wheel alignment on the car (my steering wheel is a little off center when driving on a straight road). Anyway, the mechanic said that he could not find the wheel alignment specs for my car. He said that he called three other people who he knows who also could not find the specs....Can this be true? And if so, does anyone know the specs for the wheel alignment that is willing to post them. I just never heard of NOT being able to align the wheels because the car is too new and the specs are not to be found.... Thanks in advance!

You have a 2LT/RS, not a LT2 RS.

The guy asks a simple question and you correct how he labels his own car?
Yes it may not be correct, but I mean come on man..

Hi Eap.. I would check out your local dealer for the specs.. They should have them

If I may insert my own opinion here, I'm a mechanic at a reputable shop, and any large chain of repair facilities -should- have updated specs for not only the current year, but the next full year of model-lines. Our specs are updated every 6 months by a Hunter tech, and as of right now we have vehicles loaded up to 2012 1/2. May I ask where you took your car to get aligned? If it's reputable, they should have that information. But I agree with the former post, when in doubt, refer to the dealer.

Understeer
is when you hit the wall with the front of the car.
Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.
Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall.
Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

Sorry for the type-O WCoolBreeze... Humans DO make mistakes (Geez!). Anyway, to answer your question Viper595, I took the car to a Tire center that only does tire replacements and Alignments. Thought it was kinda weird that he couldn't do it....But will take it back to the Chevy Dealer to have them do the alignment on my LT2/RS (Oops) I mean my 2LT/RS...

Take it to the dealer. I took mine to the dealer this past weekend for the same reason. My steering wheel has always been slightly off center since new and I finally got tired of it. Brought it in to the dealer and they found the left front toe alignment was slightly off. Wheel is straight and true now.
Best part...I didn't pay anything since it was warranty work.

No, this cannot be true... unless he's trying to lookup LT2 RS. Try a chain like Firestone or Midas and they'll be able to do it. Or tell your mechanic to get the specs from www.alignmentspecs.com

I took my car to a local mechanic shop after I installed 1.4" drop springs and they aligned it and even gave me a computer print out of before and after. I'm surprised that a "chain" shop would not have the specs.

If it's only the steering wheel off-center, depending on miles and dealer, I had 11,000 miles and lived with it off-center for a year. Finally bugged me enough, took car to dealer, mentioned this has been like this since day one, they corrected it under warranty.
