Default Alignment help!

Im currently trying to do an alignment on my WRX. I'm aligning according to factory specs but after driving the car it doesn't handle nearly as good as it once did. I need some advice on getting this car to handle good again. Are there any particular setups you guys recommend that won't eat my tires up and still give me that nice feeling of stability again?

Is it cornering stability that you don't like or straight line? For longevity I always go with 0 toe and then just do -1.0 camber in front and -.8 in the rear, max out your caster and make sure to have properly inflated tires (I like to run 35f/33r cold PSI on summer tires) and maybe add bigger front/rear sways. Are you on stock suspension?

I just don't like the way it handles in a straight line and the car doesn't feel as responsive as it once did in turns. I'm running KYB struts with a lowered spring and I also have front/rear Cobb sway bars.
