Autox Alignment

Well I decided to change my alignment up a little bit today. Unfortunately I did not get the factory settings for the front as we decided to loosen the front suspension to get max camber prior to starting.

I have completed 4 autox events in the car so far and will be running next week at the Tire Rack National Tour in F-Street. After 4 events I am tearing up the outside front and even rear of my tires so some changes were definitely overdue. This is what we came up:


Alignment was done with 3/4 tank and myself in the drivers seat in an otherwise empty car.

Front Camber:
Left: -1.7 degrees
Right -1.9 degrees

Front Toe:
Left: -.05 inches
Right: -.05 inches
Total: -.10 inches

Front Caster: This is were I am a little concerned as it is not adjustable
Left: 4.9 degrees
Right: 6.0 degrees
Not sure why these are so far apart. Any ideas?

Steer Ahead: 0.00

Rear Camber:
Left: -1.2 degrees
Right: -1.2 degrees

Rear Toe:
Left: .04 inches
Right: .04 inches
Total: .08

Thrust Angle: 0.00

My Factory rear settings were -.8 camber on each side. 0.00 toe left and 0.05 toe right with a thurst angle of -0.05

This is on a factory stock car. Any ideas why my caster is so off?

I believe the factory has a large tolerance. As long as it is within those specs it will have good drivability. Other than that they could care less.

I hate that there is no adjustment in the caster, it would be nice to even it out and put a few more degrees in. I don't do any auto-x but do run HPDE, I have 1.6 in the fronts and .80 in the rears, I'd like more but I'd think id chew tires up on the street.

I did mine yesterday. - 1.9 camber front, 5.4 caster both sides. 0 toe
On the rears I ended up with -.8 camber, .10 toe in both sides. .20 total. I don't know how this is going to work but I'll find out Sunday. Unfortunately it's going to be cool and the Goodyears probably won't get enough heat in them. The car out of the box was running -1.2 front and -.8 rear
