Hey guys,

I was wondering if anyone had any alignment specs for a daily driven/autocross car or maybe some general rules or guidelines to go by.

I want a good handleing car, but I don't want early tire wear.

thanks

Stock alignment (sedan, should be close for wagon) is camber front -.25, rear -1.3, 0 toe front/rear. This alignment leans towards understeer. There is stock camber adj in the front approx 1 degree, nothing in rear.

Most autox alignments I have seen run camber approx -1.5 front, 0 rear. These settings will lean towards oversteer. Personally, I'm looking at a compromise setting ~ -1.0 front, -.5 rear. The front setting is easy w/ stock adj, the rear one will need camber bolts/plates/enlarged opening in rear strut assembly (or if you have DMS coilovers, the approiate eccentric washer).

A slight (1/16th, 1/8th ") front toe out will enhance turn in, especially at lower speeds as in autox. I'll probably leave mine at 0 for now.

Its too bad they didn't see the need for stock adj in the rear.
