Question D Stock Alignment Questions

I have searched and have found some helpful hints on this subject but there seems to be some debate on other areas I was hopeing for some input in these 'gray areas'.

Here's what everyone agree's on:

Max negative camber front (somewhere around -1.3 degrees, 1/8")

Toe out rear (somewhere around 1/8" to 1/4")

My question is: What toe should I run in front? What Camber should I run in the rear?

Mods will include: 22mm or more Sway, Probably Agx Struts

Thanks
Josh

Cambers not adjustable in the rear.

Toe out the front, maybe about 1/8-1/16 for turn-in.

That swa yyou talk about is only the front, right? Rear's not touchable.

Also, I don't know if KYBs are a legal replacement... as the mounting points for the spring seats MUST be in the same exact location as stock.

Camber isn't adjustable in the rear on a stock Impreza.

For front toe, 0 - 1/8" total toe out is a good place to start.

It sure is! And I ain't tellin you how, suffice to say... it's marked very, very well.... CAMBER isn't adjustable... if that's what you meant.

dohh! That's what I get for trying to goof off and work at the same time. Making mistakes at both!

-Steve

p.s. I don't know that I'd call it WELL marked. Sure wouldn't trust the marks without some toe plates to double check with.

What year is your car? I have an '04 and I had a comp alignment done by a very well respected tuner shop in AZ that lots of people swear by, and they could only get 1.0 degrees exactly on both sides. I think the revisons to the '04 suspensions might have something to do with that. I have read all this stuff about getting 1.3 in the front, but it just didn't happen on my car.


These people fiddled with my car for over an hour and couldn't get anymore than 1.0. Time for some noltec plates.

Loosen the top bolts of the strut and push them inboard... also loosen the bolts on the bottom on the hub and pull them towards the outside of the car, if they move at all.... just picks up some of the slop.
