Have a Nice Day? alignment with STI struts on '04 WRX

I just got STI struts from my friend's '04 STI. And I just installed them on my '04 WRX and was wondering what is a good alignment setting with these new struts on my '04 WRX. Should I stick with the factory specs? New to this alignment issue can anyone suggest a good alignment setting?

Thanks,
Charlie

If your on stock springs still then i dont think you need an alignment(as long as you lined up the front camber bolts the exact postion they came out). But if your unsure, get it done. Its important and could cost you tons of money in tires.

Ride hight mostly messes with suspension geometry.

depends on what your looking to do with the car.

if your on stock camber bolts and sti suspension, zero toe and max camber f/r are a good place to start for a fast street setup.

there is almost no chance you got it straight just eyeballing the bolts. You need the alignment anything you loosen those lower bolts.

I personally LOVE
zero toe all around
-1.5 front
-1.1 rear
