Well, given that the only info you have in here is about camber, is that the only alignment spec that matters? What about toe? What about caster?

But, I'll GTFO, prez. I'm sure that'll keep your feels intact.

This is right at the beginning of the CSG/RCE thread.

I only skimmed it, but the rest made sense to me. It's like in school, just make sure what you write is accurate and well-sourced (hah, shit, school was good for something).

If it gets that long then this will get broken up into more threads.

All of this was found within seconds of using some basic search terms. If people didn't want to be spoon fed, then they'd do the legwork for themselves. Instead, we have people who want to coddle new/inexperienced members, instead of encouraging them to do some research on their own.
I know of google power, i use it myself as great problem solver timesaver in many areas. But i also know many people that are not that comfortable with computers, are not that good narrowing down search terms for best hits to turn out quick enough, not burried among pages of noise, commercial advertisements, misinformation. You prefer to be elitist pointing importance of learning computers on car forum. I .. i valued a lot help that i got from threads like steve99's bolt on guide, several threads by RCE on suspension and alikes. They were great starting points covering basics, answering most of my potential questions, introducing terms and things i didn't even knew about and wouldn't know what to google for :P. And disliked cases where i had to dig out information not covered in such guides in many threads (yes, including found by google) of 100+ pages with at most 10% somewhat valuable content that was drown among offtopic / contradicting / trolling and so on posts. I valued that help and applaud efforts of others continuing this trend of helping newbies. I won't go to carmeet or trackday and tell people that want to ask something from me to go home to their computers or to bring out their smarthpones or pads and start googling themselves, it will not make me feel better/superior/enjoying myself doing this way. Friendly chatter/help - will.

And just as finch1750 pointed out. There are very good FAQ threads on nasioc. Several times when not finding quickly information here, threads from there (yes, including found via google) helped me instead. Would love to see more of such on this forum aswell.

Added info on toe adjustment parts to first post as well as lower front control arms (does anyone have more info on the Racer X piece? like range of adjustment?)

Also added imagese to the camber/caster/toe explanations in the second post

You forgot to cover things like roll center adjustment, and camber ball joints for the rear.

Also you should add Part Shop Max to all the different parts as they make all the arms as well.

I think RCAs and ball joints would go more in a discussion with springs/coils/lowering then here. Could be that I still need to find a better title for this. I would just say alignment FAQ but that is another (shorter) thread with not as much basic info imo

and Parts Shop Max parts will be added right after this post is made.
