We have another large batch order incoming in April. We recommend just jumping into the backorder list as soon as you can. Thanks!

Generally speaking, the recommended alignment is specific to each individual. We slammed and lifted the kit + tossed in a plethora of variables for settings. At the end of the day, we're probably racers are heart so we want to stick to our performance setup.

Depending on DD settings, you'll want a little less camber if you're just running strictly street miles.

so ive been driving on mine for 3 days more or less and will say the difference between stock pp and theres are night and day. i went with the recommended drop and 8/11 clicks and on smooth roads they hook so well. i did eventually go 4 clicks softer all around because when i got to bad roads with ruts it would track the rut really badly, and when i hit big potholes i could feel my back lift. im sure a -1/16th or -1/8th toe in the back will help keep the back a bit more stable.


right now im eyeballed -2.5 front -2 back but will get a real alignment friday. ill probably go a bit stiffer once i get use to them/have a real alignment. cant wait to put my conti summers on and autocross this

So 15 clicks in back? How does it sound?

I've been tinkering with my camber over the past couple days, I'm just curious, do the hash marks on the camber plates relate to a certain degree of camber? I've just been measuring at the wheel but not paying attention to the marks.

On Camber thoughts- I'm around 3˚ front and 2.5˚ rear right now, whats the chances of needing toe arms? (I'll probably go to 3.25 and 2.75 eventually, slowly making adjustments here and there)

It's a rough gauge of camber and makes it easier to reference when adjusting but varies. I wouldn't rely on it solely but next time you get an alignment you can ask them to mark it down on some tape on top of it showing the range of degrees.

No, you won't need toe arms unless you're running something crazy. I've had more camber than you and the stock toe arms were more than enough.

I guess while I'm here, is this amount of leftover welding slag/splatter normal?
Not a terribly big deal, but I wouldn't want anything to cause premature corrosion...

Some updates for latest incoming batch - ETA is end of March/beginning of April.

Recommended adjustments are in the manual. This will give you a fairly nominal setup and you can adjust from there.
