Absolutely. The stabilitrak computer thinks you are counter-steering in a skid.

Great job!. She looks great.

20 degrees or so is a lot for the Camaro and absolutely can cause the Stabilitrac light to be on. The Camaro is very sensitive to this!

You should also double check to make sure all the speed sensors are connected as well if the light does not go off.

Do you need help with the align specs?

thanks

yea they all looked good thats why i was scared cause the lights arent on at start up but once i get up to speed it comes on. i have your 2 sheets with the alignment specs i think i might go with factory specs to preserve tires since this is my DD. gonna try and lift it up a inch before alignment.

As a review this is what I would do for aggressive street. Since you have the Pedders adjusters installed, you will be able to do it

Front:
camber -1.0 degrees
Caster. Eccentric bolt most forward
Toe at .1 degrees toe out each wheel

Rear
camber at -.5 degrees each wheel
toe at .05 toe in each wheel

These settings will not affect tire wear and will very much improve your understeer issues.


If you want to chat about them, just call me

Hope it helps

thanks

That is OK! But dropping the cradle engough to put the eccentrics in is a real peice of cake. All you have to do is drop it down about 2 inches to get the left rear toe link.

But if you do not want to do the toe link, it is really easy to do the rear camber adjuster. This is the most important one in the rear and requires no dissassembly other than removing the OE eccentric. Remember to reverse directions of the bolt, and add a little lubricant

take care!

What you need to do is to put the vheicle in the air with the wheels loaded. Then loosen the bushings that have vertical movement, drive the Camaro 100 to 300 yards, then tighten the bushings again with the wheels loaded. This will recenter the OE bushing ferrules.

If the alignment shop is close just back them off a little and sneak over nice and easy then have them tighten them back down on the rack. If I remember right they are all locknuts.
