I believe the answer is "none" with the car in its stock configuration. By installing aftermarket parts (and I don't recall which parts they would be), you can add camber adjustability.

I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong about this, but that's what I recall reading in one of the alignment threads on this forum.

^^^ That sucks, I was just noticing that my rears looks to have a little negative camber, and I was gonna take it to the dealer to check if it was within spec and adjust it...

Are your tires wearing unevenly, or are you just eyeballing it? Do you rotate your tires regularly?




Frankly, I'm not sure why front-wheel drive and AWD/rear-wheel drive cars use a different crossing pattern. With either crossing pattern, each tire eventually ends up installed on each corner of the car. So what difference does it make whether you front cross or rear cross, as long as you do it consistently?

Negative camber is correct, Subaru designeed it that way

No, I've only put 1500 miles on her so far, so no uneven tire wear yet and I have a service plan that includes rotation. And yes, I'm just eyeballing it, and it just bothers me visually that the rear wheels look more sunk in than the fronts...

That is correct. No stock rear camber adjustment. Only the toe can can be adjusted. I'm dropped on rs-r springs and my rear camber is at -2.7 and -3.0. They set the toe at 1.1 rather than closer to 0 cuz it tracks better they said.

Front has complete stock adjustments.

Sorry I asked incorrectly. I was wondering what aftermarket camber adjustment is available to us. I drive lots for work and would like to fix it.

DJ your slammed! Haha what are your specs? And what are you dropped on again.

I am developing one actually, go to impreza forums to find my muffler delete thread.

I had the muffler delete. Sold the piece to SIA Worker. I liked it, but it was a bit droney with the CVT at low "overdrive" RPM's. I am currently running the custom-built Moore single outlet axleback with a straight back tip, 3" tubing, and an SLP Loudmouth bullet style muffler. Similar to muffler delete, but with less drone.

I have to say the delete gives a great sound but ya it's too much drone for me since I do a bunch of highway driving. I think I'm going back to stock until I can get a real exhaust.

Great warm idle though.. haha

I really wonder how the muffler delete sounds on a 5MT car. I bet it would be just about perfect. As most of the exhaust issues seem to come from the CVT's deep overdrive..

I had one on my 5MT and it had some serious drone around 80-100km/h. Like yours it sounded nice at idle and certain speeds but it got unbearable at times so I went back to stock

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I was under the assumption that the Impreza/XV and FRS/BRZ had "more or less" the same motor. The FRS/BRZ with an exhaust sounds great. What gives with ours? lol

Could it be because it's direct injected? Don't know that much about it but only real difference other than tuning that I know about.

It really doesn't and I don't understand that either.

Do you mean the FRS/BRZ?? Cause our imprezas don't have DI.
