My recent alignment numbers, input?

I posted this in the "What have you done..." thread but will probably get more input here...



Should I go back and ask them to dial something in differently?

The Caster is a little concerning...

they arnt "dialing" anything. if they put it on an alignment rack with the mirrors and lasers, they just typed in the year make and model and the computer spit out the numbers that the factory says are within tolerance. you want an alignment done proper, go to a place like true line down here in san diego and they do it all by hand.

yup!

OME all around with stock UCAs (where my problem is originating).

I got the lifetime alignment at firestone so I can go in and have them tweak as necessary (had a quick convo with their tech and he seemed to know his stuff).

I'd just like to get some input on what I could potentially have them do to get everything a little bit closer.

My tires are visibly \/ in the front which makes me sad

According to that sheet you only have .2* camber, i don't think you should be able to notice that. Looks like you might need some aftermarket UCAs, how does it drive on the highway?

Pretty much everyone suggest getting new UCAs when going anything over 2.5" (even at 2.5"). could be different for 1st gens...

If you do want to get in on some aftermarket UCAs, the Headstrong GB is ending very soon.. There may be other UCA GBs going on as well.

^vtrguy has a 2001, 1st gen.

In any case, even with stock UCAs, he should have more caster available through adjustment (turn the forward LCA cams all the way in, turn the rear LCA cams all the way out).
