    Very happy with the outcome. Plan to have alignment done in about a week after the springs have settled. I know nothing can be done about camber or caster without more parts, but want to make sure toe is good to start with, and take it from there based on camber/caster readings. Car feels more planted, and ride seems unchanged.[​IMG]

    When mine was aligned they could get all into spec but camber....let me know if you have the same results....make sure you give the shop the Eibach alignment specs.

    Mine sits about like yours and all 4 tires are at - 1.8 deg. camber which works great as a track/street compromise. The toe had to be adjusted.

    Camber adjustment bolts will fix that.

    Help me, we can't find the "camber adjustment bolts".
    Front upper arm is not adjustable, neither are either the front or back rear top connecting arms. What are you using?

    Had my alignment shop look at the car yesterday. In my opinion, this shop is the best in Houston as they have a lot of experience with track car setups, lowered cars as well as lifted trucks. Have taken all my cars to them in the past.

    Front left camber: -1.8
    Front right camber: -1.7
    Back left camber. -1.4
    Back right camber: -1.4

    He did need to adjust the front toe in...front left was a bit too far out.. He was happy with the outcome, and suggested no adjustable control arms for the front or bushings for the rear. The car tracks straight, and the handling is in the sporty zone that I like. Overall, I am very pleased.

    Yep...getting the toe in right is huge for straight tracking.

    Sounds basically like my outcome as well. No need to adjust the camber.

    Got the Eibach springs put in yesterday and love the look. Ride remains the same except for when you roll over some bumps but nothing alarming by any means. Specs came out fine according to the installer per the Eibach specs. I don't have those numbers tho, sorry. image.jpeg

    Feedback is you can go with a 305 but you will need to heat-up and reshape the plastic inner fender on the drivers side. I'll be ordering 305's next week based on that feedback from other's on the forum...check out StellasHC.

    Same question for me; just moved to Houston and need reliable partners in the car world. If you're comfortable, I'd like to know who you use and trust. Thanks!
