    Post alignment review - For a friend

    Hello,

    I have a buddy who for whatever reason has come to me with advice on getting his WRX aligned. I have told him numerous times to go to the forums and see what information is out there. That being said, could you please review his post alignment sheet and let me know your thoughts? I was surprised to see the rear camber exceed the front. Thoughts?

    Thanks in advance...

    What year is his car? Is he lowered?

    That's significant rear camber, my guess is he's lowered and has a 08+ car meaning the rear is not adjustable.
    The toe looks spot on and front camber is at a good spot.

    Thanks A265 for reply. His car is 2010 and has Raceland's adjustable damping coilover kit. It does have both front and rear adjustable camber plates.

    I'm not sure how he could have rear adjustable camber plates on a double wishbone suspension setup.

    To have rear adjustability on 08+ cars you must get adjustable lower control arms, or specific bushings that are a PITA. Since he has coilovers (cheap and generally considered junk brand) it would explain why he has such high negative camber.

    Thanks...I was 'told' his rears were camber adjustable. So I'm assuming based on the lack of adjustability in the rear, the lowering of the car is was changed the rear camber as much as it did, and since it not adjustable something that can't be dialed back?

    Thanks again.

    Unless if he has adjustable lower control arms no they can't be adjusted.

    It's not a great set-up. The rear camber is pretty drastic and will cause some tire wear. The rest is ok. really kind of depends on what he is doing with the car, though. For daily it's fine except for the rear tire wear. If he wants to autoX or whatnot I would suggest dialing in a little more negative camber up front.
