Impressions:

Alignment Specs:



I got -1.29* and -1.26* of camber using the stock bolts and a bubble level and a tape measure. My toe was way off.

After an alignment and 30 miles of driving, the stance look like this:



Measurements were taken from the center of each wheel to a point on the fender lip perpendicular to the ground. This measurement is the most consistent way to show height changes. While on stock suspension, I took two measurements (to ensure accuracy) while parked in each of two different locations and recorded my results. Then I took the same measurements after an alignment and 30 miles of driving. I will do the same in a day or so.

Before:
RR: 14.25" 14.375"
LR: 14.375" 14.25"
RF: 14.5" 14.75"
LF: 14.5" 14.5"

After:
RR: 14.5" 14.5"
LR: 14.625" 14.5"
RF: 14.125" 14.125"
LF: 14.0" 14.0"

So the rear came up by 1/8-1/4" while the front came down by about 1/2" when measured in the same parking spots.

More on driving impressions later.

Koni adjustment settings:

Rear is at 1 full turn from full stiff. Front is 1.25 turns from full stiff.
