Good alignment specs?

How are my settings? This is with the powerflex adjustable camber bushings up front.

confused. looks like everything is in the stock ranges. I would have expected to see more camber up front. the F30 begggggs for more camber up front. I would get to 1.5 at least if you can. everything else seems fine.

Hijacking thread.

Should I get an alignment before track season starts?

Stock suspension so no lowering, but not sure how off it is from all the potholes over the winter.

I can't speak to potholes. I got an alignment last season while still stock, to get some camber in back and some of the toe out in front. I think it helped a little. The rear tires certainly wore a bit more evenly.

Thanks, definitely looking at a more aggressive toe in the front.
Too bad camber is not adjustable up there though, would prefer more camber up front as well.
My tire wear isn't bad but it's definitely not even.

Loving my adjustable camber bushings just the added half a degree neg camber makes a difference.

The alignment shop didn't change your front camber. It's still the same. They didn't dial in an extra half degree negative. Show your shop this thread.
