So here we go with an age old question -

 

Wheel alignment recommendations please

 

1996 SPI with stage 1 kit and fully adjustable Camber/caster/height wheel alignment front and back, red spots front and standard back with KYB gas a just's all round - 12" 165/60/12 - (just installed and hence the question)

Planning on hopefully lowering the car by 10mm front and back from stock 

 

looking for maybe stage 3 kit in a couple of years but after fun drive on twisty turning roads - hardly ever motorway (just for shows etc).

 

Recommendations please👍😁

keep tracking standard at 1.5mm (10 to 20 minutes) toe out, standard caster 2 degrees positive and set camber to 1.5 degrees negative. can go to 2 degrees on camber but at this or any more will be a pig in wet weather. as for lowering should be ok at 10mm on standard dampers but any more will need lowered dampers.

would also advise fitting longer trackrods available from mini suppliers like minispares

for rear keeps atandard toe setting of 3.1mm (44minutes) toe in and set camber to 0.5mm negative

these are what settings i run and found to work well

I have fitted the minispares front shock brackets  - C-AJJ3359

 

that raise the pin slightly so hoping this is ok.

just 10mm should be ok on std. brackets, be carefull not to end up with too large gap for damper and end up pulling it apart, have seen this done when wrong dampers used on std. height cars.
