Well Toyota was suppose the do the alignment with the instalaltion of the springs before I got the car. I waited a about week for the camber bolts and went at a garage near from my house. I asked them to check the alignment, just in case. I'm glad I did because it was totally off on every corners and the toe was off too. So it's either they didn't do it at all or they absolutely suck at it.

I know for a fact that misadjusted toe is a kiiler on our cars. So they corrected everything and I haven't look back since.

By the way, I'm going at the dealership next Tuesday for the first 8000km service. I can't wait to hear their answer when I tell them about the alignment. Lots of BS coming I suppose...

I forgot to mention that the suspension felt harsher before the alignment. I think it's because the toe was so off that bump felt like the car was "dragged" from the back. I don't know if that even make sense (english is my 3rd language), but my wife told me the same thing the day after the alignment and she don't know anything about cars, camber and stuff.

For the little story, she's just glad that she can drive my 86 once a week when I take my delivery truck to my store. I was coming back home last Thursday, when I saw her sliding the back end in an exit ...I'm not sure I want her to drive it anymore, but she was so damn sexy beating the crap out of it!

how "off" was everything? keep in mind different alignment machines can read differently.

I was waiting for full spring sag before I got it aligned. Many of the guys here reported additional lowering after gravity and a little usage for a week.

Actually went and got the alignment done today though.

I’m at -1.5/-1.4 camber front (SPC camber bolts) and “naturally” -1.9/-1.9 on the rear.

I'm not sure, but I think it was 0.30 and 0.27 or something like that...if that even make sense.

My garage is using a system with lasers. I don't know if that's precise, but it looks impressive while doing it.

The numbers is one thing, the feeling behind the wheel is another. There might be a placebo effect with stuff like that, but I swear it feels less harsh with zero toe.

Keep in mind that I live in Montréal. We are world renowned for our crappy roads in Quebec. We have oversensitive butts for road surface...and I mean, only road surface.

I went in Tcoat country (Ontario) last week for a delivery and the difference is night and day. These guys know how to make roads that last over winters.

Great combo. Get some camber bolts and get a really proper alignment. You like the change. For daily it's a great setup and should have came from the factory this way
