1LE alignment question

I posted this in the alignment section first but I realized you boys might have a quicker answer.

Just got through having all the 1LE package components installed on my 2010. Question regarding alignment specs though. The ABSOLUTE most CASTER we could coax out of the setup was roughly 6 degrees. This car is lowered roughly 1.6 inches using BMR springs.

Are you guys able to see MORE than this with your setups?

Supposedly 7.5 to 8.5 degrees caster is slightly more desirable.

THANKS!

From the factory caster is non adjustable on the front of a camaro, pedders used to have to caster bolt kit avalible you may still be able to find one around. Just aligned my 1LE and is was at 5.8* left and 5.7* right

Well I thought caster is non-adjustable on the REAR of our cars. The Front is adjustable because my initial setting was 5.61 and 5.82 degrees (L,R). FInal adjustment was 5.84 and 6.16 degrees (L,R) but like I said, that was the MAX I could set it at.

Thanks!

I'm about to put the 1LE track pack on as well. How do you like it and is it a big difference?

Caster is only a front alignment angle and from the factory it is non adjustable, we can adjust camber and toe both front and rear on a 5th gen.
Now caster may slightly change as you change ride height or camber but only a few .X*s

1LE difference

Well the biggest difference in the 1LE package I would say is that the steering is pretty much effortless. I used to get ALOT more tire squeal at the same cornering speeds on my SS setup. What basically that is telling me is that the 1LE suspension is planting the tire much more squarely on the pavement resulting in a better contact patch.

I can let you guys know more after this weekend. I autocross this car and I have a competition this weekend. I also am trying out my new tire and wheel setup with 315 35 20 and 285 35 20 tires. The wheels are the ZL1/1LE style with 20 x 10 fronts and 20 x 11's rear. I was getting WAY too much understeer with the SS setup but I found one of my problems with that is I had broken the sway bar link for the rear sway bar. This I found out is a COMMON problem and GM fixed it by using the later year model lower control arms because the mounting point for the link is relocated to put less bind on it.

I had thought of course of using a square 285 35 20 setup which would help some with under steer. I decided to use 315 35 20's instead on the rear though because of the looks and the fact I occasionally straight line the car.
