Question ACTUAL GM alignment specifications?

Does any one really know what they are?

Since the GM service manual is not out I have no idea.

saw one post on here with specs. But they are all very different and mention
"FE2" "WRS" and "RPO"

No idea how that relates to a 2ssRS.

I checked mine stock I have.

Front -1.3 camber each side 0 toe.
Rear -1 and -1.2 camber and +.120 toe "in"

Please help!
Thanks.

Yes Thank you.
This is what I found in my search. But there are two front settings and three rear settings. What do the definitions in my first post mean so I can use the table correctly?

What do the followng mean then.

FE2
FE3
RPO
WRS
WBS

Thanks.

With stock suspension, I would go with FE3 suspension for all vehicles. To be honest, there is little difference.

Now with a Pedderized Camaro, that is a different ballgame., We can go a lot more radical and still have good tire wear.

thanks

If those are the GM codes it should be

FE2 - V6 suspension
FE3 - V8 suspension
WRS - Rally Sport Package (20" wheels instead of 19" on LT's)
WBS - LT without RS package ?

It seems there are different specs for LT's with and without the RS package.

Thank you everyone.

Exactly what I was looking for.

My first thought is that toe in of .2 for the rear is too much? But the specifications are what they are.

Being a Rear wheel drive I would have thought more to 0 for toe. But this is my first rear wheel drive independent rear suspension car also.

Now I just need my Pedders coil overs ordered September 16!

Thanks again!

With your Pedders coil overs do this:
Front
Camber -1.0 each wheel
Toe at .05-.07 toe out each wheel

Rear
Camber -.5
toe at .0

this will make you smile!

Those specs are good from 1/2 drop to a 2 inch drop. We can go seriously different when we add the bushes, etc.

Sway bars really do not affect alignment settings.

Now one other thing to do is to have the Camaro 1/2 inch lower in the back than the front. This will help the serious decels and hard braking.

What kind of alignment settings would you recommend with just changing the springs out with H & R Springs?
