Alignment

This is the alignment on my car, do you have a better one for more tire contact? Looking at the tires I could use a little more tire contact if I can recall looking at them at lsFest. Getting a strut replaced under warranty and wanna take advantage of them paying for an alignment if I can benefit from it.

Will have to see what they can get for camber up front then decide, I would think -2.1 to -2.3 up front would help although daily driving can limit tire life, I would also go with 0 front toe which will help turn in and tire wear on the road. You should keep camber = side to side so that can be a limiting factor if it is not possible at larger degrees of negative camber. Rear I would not change much if it was me.

You could try a little toe out in the front and it would help with turn in but it also makes the car a bit of a handful on the street if you take it too far. You can add more front camber at the expense of caster but I'd like a pic of your tire wear first. Maybe a little more rear camber could help but I'd also want to look at your tires before I recommended that. It's a really good baseline right now. I run mine like this

Front Camber: -1.6DEG L&R
Front Sum Toe: -0.10DEG
Rear Camber: -1.0DEG L&R
Rear SUM TOE +0.10DEG

Thanks for the input guys. I'm going to change the camber to -2 and the toe to 0 and see how my tires look and see what difference the toe makes.

Not sure you can get the car to -2 up front without plates? I'm at 1.5 as of the last alignment, and the outside front edge definitely does take a beating on the road course.

How are your tires wearing? If they are wearing even then don't worry about it, if the outside of the tire is completely worn then you need more camber.

I have the front camber maxed out at around -2 deg. Tires wearing much better now right to edge.
