I finally got my alignment taken care of. :D

After getting all the heads on, the bushings were retimed. The car immediately showed about -0.1 deg change in camber all the way around, indicating it dropped a bit more.

The front camber is now set to -0.9 deg on both sides.
The rears are at -0.8 deg on both sides.
Toe is at -0.05 deg all the way around.
Caster (of course) is not adjustable from the factory, but is within specs.

We couldn't get a printout since the power went out right when we were finishing up. :facepalm:

Thanks. The handling is very balanced now. Need to get sways soon.

Those you can change out yourself. These will make a HUGE handling difference. I love mine, like she is on rails.

I actually changed out the springs myself, and took a good look at the sways while I was under there. Looks pretty straight forward.

I only had the car in the shop for the bushing retiming and alignment. I don't have an alignment rack in my house (yet). :lol:

Wow. That's a lot of negative camber on the front. I'm sure it handles great, but those tires are going to get some serious wear on the inside edge.

As long as you're happy.

How do you like your headers and tune? Those two things are on my to do list, along with sway bars.

Best two mods I done so far I know my neighors hate when I leave for work at 11 pm. But then again when I get home at 6 am I am there alarm clock. My next mod is also sway bars, hopefully this month then I will take it to the dealer to align it right but the four letter word let a friend give it alignment to test the new set up. Best he could do but its better than it was after the install.

The shop I went to didn't even have specs for anything newer than the old 4th gen Camaro in the computer. We manually entered a mix of factory and Pfadt recommended settings. I'm happy.
