    Need 'performance' alignment help!

    So I found a place which will do an alignment to my likings. Only problem is, I got no idea what to change or do. Please help, I drive a 2011 STi sedan, all stock suspension, not even sways yet. I don't care how rough the ride will be (if that can even change) as long as im not putting addition wear on parts such as tires and other suspension parts (I had to go through alot to get my Blizzack's and they need to last as long as possible as im 18 with no income currently).
    Any suggestions are wanted. Thank you and happy modding! P.S. Hope u Tri-state'rs enjoyd the snow!

    Big Sky is the resident alignment expert and wrote a sticky about this, it's very informative. Alignment basics

    This is what I would recommend.
    0 toe all around, this is going to help with better wear. Be very assertive about getting toe as close to 0 as possible.
    Front camber I'd go -1.0 degrees, ensure to have as close as possible cross camber. If you AutoX (I never tracked my car so I can't speak for track specs) I would go for as much negative camber up front as possible (up to -2.0 degrees), consider adding camber bolts.
    The rear is not adjustable on a 08+ impreza without spending a considerable amount of money.

    Peg the front camber as negative as you can using stock bolts without cross-camber (likely -1.2-1.4). That's about it for you, really. Make sure there isn't any toe.

    Okay so I'm going to tell them I want 0 toe, and without cross-camber I want roughly -1 Camber?

    Max the front, as long as both sides are the same.
