Maybe start with -3F/-2.5R? 0 toe seems to be a popular place to start as well.

I would start with -3.3 to -3.5 in front, and anywhere between -2.5 to -3.0 in rear.

It will always depend on your tires and driving style. Get a pyrometer and take some readings at the next track day to see what you need.

But like they said above, -3 to -3.5 front and -2 to -2.5 rear is a good starting point. I run 0 toe in front and a tiny bit of toe-in on the rear (0.22* if i remember correctly).

Copy paste from elsewhere, regarding setting your CSG Flex A.

For street use, the CSG FLA comes with a pre-recommended setting of 8 clicks from max front, and 11 clicks from max rear. However, depending on your vehicle load and or personal preference, you may find the most comfortable setting + or - 1 click from 8f/11r. For example, if you have an empty trunk, you may find 12 clicks more comfortable. Alternatively, if you carry a lot of stuff in the trunk for work, you may find 11 or even 10 more comfortable. Likewise, if you have a turbocharger adding weight to the front, 7 clicks may be more comfortable in the front than 8.

For autocross and circuit use, anywhere from 3-6 clicks from maximum is recommended for the front with Street tires, and 4-7 in the rear. Slicks may benefit from a higher damping setting, depending on surface quality. A smoother surface will allow for more damping without compromising grip or surface contact.

Ultimately, these are highly tuned and adaptable coilovers, and it's up to the end user to determine the best setting for them. 99% of the work has been done for you, but the last 1% is always different for every car, based on usage conditions and personal preference.

That sold out pretty fast, but you're definitely in line once the kits come in soon.

Upcoming batch is soon. Next batch is in April with people already filling in spots.

Sheesh, these are popular. Glad I found this thread. Just placed my order. Hopefully they get here in time for a mid May event.

Regarding rear alignment and the need for LCAs, if I install these at the factory set height with no camber adjustable rear components, what kind of camber should I expect in the rear? I know every car is different and the car wonít be setup optimally but want to have an idea how long I can get by without forking over the dough for high end LCAs. Also saving for oil cooler and track wheels/tires. Thanks

it's a crapshoot, some cars are pretty uneven from the factory, mine was almost a degree different on one side than the other in the rear (and no, there is no evidence of collision or accidents). you dont necessarily need the high end LCAs, the cheapo SPC LCA's are just like OEM but adjustable.

It's a crapshoot, but most people have between -2.2 and -3.2 in the rear. A particularly talented shop can unbolt the subframe and center it manually, but expect to pay $$$$$ for that kind of work.

You could also even out left/right camber by using Spoon Rigid Collars, which are much less expensive than just paying labor, and are guaranteed.
