BEST alignment?

Front:
-3.5 negative camber
1/16th toe-out
MAX caster

Rear:
-2.5 negative camber if staggered, -3 if not
1/32nd toe-in


I'd go -4 up front but I doubt the strut towers will allow it even with the best of camber plates.

That's about perfect for a street driven car. I run -1.7 front -1.8 rear and my car handles like a sports car. You'd want more neg camber at the track.

Or -1.5 as you stated. Depends on how often and hard you corner. Not much difference between the 2 settings
