Question Alignment advice..

Hey guys i have to have a alignment done because i was in a minor fender bender and it bent my lower control arm.....My car has Pedders front and rear sway bars with endlinks. This is the only suspension mod i have.....I was wondering if I should have them put it to the stock alignment or have them do the pedders aggressive street? Please let me know what you think thanks!

Well..... that really depends on you.

How do you drive your car? That will answer your question.

I am with lscamaro on this though.

This ↑↑↑. . . . and to the extent that I'm somewhat more familiar with the roads in OP's neck of the woods I'll try to refine that a bit.

If your driving consists almost entirely of city surface streets and slow 90° corners onto narrow side streets off the main road and at traffic lights, stock alignment to maybe stock with cambers that are only a little more negative than stock will work well enough.

But an aggressive street setting will be more suitable if you're at all inclined to travel the twistier roads in the greater Philly area or get out into the county back roads or lean on it a bit on the I-95 on-ramps and exits (you should be familiar with the Woodhaven Rd interchange up by the Franklin Mills complex). If you were to take in a Philly Region SCCA autocross at Warminster community park or come down to NJMP for a track day, you'd probably want the aggressive settings even as a newbie. . . . . FWIW, 300 HP can get you well beyond 100 mph at either of the road courses at NJMP.
