    Default What do you run for alignment?

    I am starting this thread because I am curious more then anything. State your setup what class you run, and what your alignment is spec'd to.

    setup
    03' Tiburon GT strut housings
    Koni adjustables for said year of Tiburon
    Tiburon lowering springs
    22mm rear adjustable sway bar (set to stiffest setting)
    17" Enkei wheels with 215/40/17 Falken Azenis RT-615 tires (been running around 40 psi in them)
    Eibach eccentric camber bolts both front and rear

    I am running STS class. Been doing fairly well. Car is going to be more competitive then I thought now that I got the all the adjustable stuff figured out.

    Basically I am more curious as to what people are running for camber.

    I am running -2.08 in the front, and -1.90 in the rear. With the sway bar it turns in beautifully, and doesn't push at all. Very neutral setup. If anything it oversteers.

    I don't run autocross, but I set mine up to -1.2 rear, and -0.5 front. Eibach springs, and 19mm tib rear sway. It's pretty neutral going into corners.

    I don't regularly autocross either but mine is set -.5 in the front and -1 in the rear. It responds well for a stock suspension.

    You guys should maybe try running more negative in the front then in the rear. It will make for a bit better turn in. Although it could potentially cause for a bit more oversteer. Just a thought.

    Actually, a bit more Toe In would make for better turn in, not the camber. The camber would only help settle the car through the turn, not into or out of it.

    Waiting on the fundage for the frt camber bolts, so right now my 'kooks are getting a severe beating on the outside half of the tire.

    225/45/16 RS-2 Hankooks. Currently about -.8 in the front and about -.9 in the rear.

    Sure, if you go to a good alignment shop. You'll need to purchase camber bolts in order to have them change the numbers to what you want though.
