Default Alignment Tomorrow

Getting my car aligned tomorrow after installing rce yellow springs with d-specs. Also installed RCE lowering camber plates. I have 17x8+48 wheels right now but plan to get either a 17x9+45 or a 18x8.5+44 or 48. What my question is what camber and toe specs do you recommend for the front and rear without rubbing strut? I'm okay with having to pull or roll fenders. Thanks

Thanks for the help! I know it should be 0 but wondering what the camber should be? I'm thinking 1.6 degrees in front and 2 degrees in rear?

I'm not sure what car you have. Fix your profile.


For a good street performance set up for most WRX and STI.

-2.0 camber front (both sides EVEN!).
-1.5 camber rear.
Zero toe all around.

Edit: you have camber plates, so you should have no problem getting to -2.0 front.
With a stock set up you might only be able to get -1.5 front.

without bolts your probably only going to see -1.5 to maybe -1.7 up front and -1.5 in the rear. 0 toe on all 4's, and of course the biggest thing is just to make things even!
let us know how you make up! make sure you get a print out, I don't trust anybody lol

Gonna bump this thread. Unfortunate my alignment got delayed to next week, which could be good. Today I noticed I did not get the washer or nut insert that comes with them. Are these two things necessary for the plates to work properly? If so, were can I get these?
