Alignment settings/Alignment Shop

I have a set of Whiteline Camber bolts I'm looking to put in and have aligned.

My question is what kind of alignment settings would you all suggest? The car is completely stock suspension wise. I'm also looking to get a recommendation on a good alignment shop around the Mississauga area.

What are you doing with the car?

Get as much front camber as you can, match the rears to that or go .5* less in the back than the front. 0 toe all around, maybe a little bit of toe in on the rear. As far as shops in Mississauga, no clue.

Not in Mississauga, but for alignments I go to Altech in Etobicoke. Also, try NV Auto in Hamilton.

Since you only have camber bolts for the front, you'll be stuck with whatever the rear naturally has.

Get as much camber up front as you can, 0 front toe and 1/16" total rear toe in.

+1 for Altech.

align the car exactly as I requested.

They even call me to the back to show me alignment spec on screen.

Will probably go back again soon. Also NV Does good work too, you cant go wrong with both.

ideally you want the camber to be the same on each end of the car. Your rear camber is 0.37 degrees off left to right. I'm not sure what the acceptable range is but I would try to get it as close as possible. Maybe consider getting adjustable rear control arms to correct camber.

Well, stock has no adjustment, so the guys doing the alignment are stuck doing the best they can with what they have available to them.

What I mean is they didn't try and make both fronts same or rears same. I have white line camber bolts up front.

What did you ask them to do, and where did you go?

They can only adjust rear toe unless you buy something to allow camber adjustment.

That's good enough for DD and casual fun, I wouldn't go back unless you're going to change parts (rear LCA's), you won't be able to tell the difference between before and after at this point.

After doing more reading...(which i really should have done prior to my alignment and not just relied on the shop for the best outcome) should my front camber not be in the negatives?

here is a great link for help for anyone that needs it
