Hey guys, I recently did my alignment and set it up for -2.5 up front and -1.8 in the rear. Is this too much camber for a car that is used for some highway with some spirited driving?

-2.5 up front will eat the inside of you tire faster then say -1.5 or -2.0.

with that much camber the car will be twitchy and will have less straightline grip and in the rain you'll notice it the most.

Are you running camber plates or bolts?

If you arnt taking the car to an autox or track I would say thats too much. I guess -1.5 is plenty for a street car - thats if you push it occasionally I suppose.

With that said, I drive around with -2.7 fronts and -1.4 in the rears around on the street during the autox season. I dont bother with street settings since I dont use whacky toe settings.

My goal after the springs and rear camber bolts is going to be -3.0 front and -1.2 rear.

I run mine at -2.5F -1.8R and it works perfectly, although I track my car often so its a bit more necessary. For a car that is not tracked or auto-xed, I would say -2.5 is overkill. -1.5-2 should still feel great while providing better tire wear and straight line stability.

Ok, I think I'm gonna go ahead and pull it back to about -2.0 up front and leave the rear alone, cause the rear is such a pain to adjust.
