I'm going to jack it up, push pull the wheel to see if I can feel any play.

Just checked for play in the wheel, jacked it up again. When moving the wheel in the 3 & 9 o'clock position I can move the driverside wheel back and forth with an audible click/knock maybe a half an inch. On the passenger side movement is very minimal maybe a 1/16" with a slight click. The driverside is much more loose and the noise in both cases is coming from the steering rack boot, I think the inner tie rod is in there. Maybe?

I haven't had to do it lately, but it shouldn't matter where you go. As long as you do not have a CEL.

But it's also not that hard to bypass cel's through a tune or other avenues. All you need is a shop that is "by the book" and notices you have no cat and turns you in....

most places won't bother with a mirror or putting it on the rack.

Key word there is most. I'm sure they're a few on the list that will take it to an extreme especially If they are "muscle car" guys.

I actually took my car to the new Tires Plus in Waukesha off of Sunset. I gave them the specs I wanted and they did a great job meeting the specs. They put in my new Whiteline bushings too.

One near 13th and college just plugs into your OBD2 port and as long as you have no CEL's you are good.

I'm taking it to lake country/county, Justin seems to be a really cool guy and asked. "So, what specs do you want it to?" I think thats a pretty cool opening question. Do you guys have any recommendations for a dd looking for better handling? I have stout mounts, rsb, sti pink struts/springs and summer tires.

Depends on what YOU want. Im at -3*f/-2.2 back. Yes thats alot but remember camber doesnt ruin tires, toe does. For a DD id go for -2.0 to -2.5 front and like -1.8 rear, and go from there.

Toe does, but on a car that actually sees highway miles that much camber will eat your tires.

I think anything more than -2.0 for a daily is too much if you put a decent amount of mileage on. I run -1.6 up front and -1.3 in back and my tire wear is perfect.

It will eat them but not terribly. Atleast I wouldn't think. The added camber though is so much fun!! Lol

My buddy was running -3 and the inside shoulders got shaved very badly on the highway. He was doing a long commute every day though for awhile last fall.
