I've had the pinks in now for over 100 miles to settle in, so it's time for the alignment. Can someone tell me what alignment specs I should tell the shop to give the STI a more 'Evo-like' steering response? Also, would this hurt tread life? Thx.

The rear camber is fixed, but in my car was about -1.3 both sides from the factory so that was OK. I had the fronts adjusted to the max. - camber I could get stock, without having to purchase camber bolts. I ended up with -1.3 L and -1.4 R. Toe was adjusted to 1/16th out front and rear; (I think that's correct, I'll have to check the print-out again).
I find the steering more responsive now, and the overall handling is 'sharper'. I found that these changes made the STi far more responsive on my last track visit, but attribute most of the changes to the springs. No problems with increased tyre wear yet.
The only thing I will do in the future is to find a way to increase front camber settings to approx. -2.5.
