Need some alignment gurus!

What alignment specs would you guys suggest, I do a bit of spirited driving and a bit of Straight line drag racing and car is my daily driver.

I was thinking something like this, what is your opinion? I don't think I can put it to factory with all my suspension upgrades lol!! Who would want factory anyway!

Front:

Camber: -1.2 or -1.4
Toe: 0

Rear:

Camber: -1.5 or 2.0
Toe: .20 total toe in

Hi Harold,
Do you know if the standard strut tower reinforcement bar can be used with the adjustable strut tower adjustable camber plates? I'm building up a basic E-46 sedan racer for CASC-OR Time Attack and BMW club racing. Coilovers are not allowed under the rules without attracting PIP's that affect your class. Thanks TomB in Ontario, Canada

For a car that sees mostly street driving, and a little drag racing, I wouldn't do zero toe.

Front:
-0.7 to -1.2 camber
1/16" toe-in

Rear:
-0.5 to -1 camber
1/32" toe-in.

could you forward me these alignment specs? also maybe a recommendation for a lowered car friendly alignment shop in SB? Planning on getting an alignment done once I do a fluid flush and front pad change.

Seems a lot of people want these so here they are, don't know if Harold took in account my mods or not.

Harold@HPAutowerks suggested the following alignment specs.

Front camber: (-1.4)
Front toe: (0.06 total)

Rear camber: (-1.5)
Rear Toe: (.18 total)[/quote]

If you want to go through our shop, we can get the car properly aligned for you. We do the alignment the old school way at the shop or sublet for a laser sensor type alignment and hand you a printout of your specs. Most people will choose the later so there is something to reference to.
