I will be getting the Koni/GC setup for my LS. I plan on getting a lifetime alignment from BrakeCheck. I don't want to get a camber kit when I lower my car because i want a little camber(car will be lowered between .25 inches to .75 inches). also the shop won't do custom alignments but will align what they are able to, to factory specs. how do i know and measure what factory ride height is(for a baseline) and what is the ratio for inches(or m.m.) lowered to degrees negative camber gained? Basically I want to do the ride height/camber adjustment before I get to the alignment shop so they can fix the toe/caster. Also, is the ratio different front to rear? Suggestions on what a good camber setting would be(front and rear) for me would be appreciated. I do auto-x, some daily driving, and road course/back road. I donít want to lower the car more than .75 inches for clearance reasons. I also donít want some crazy auto-x setting that will send the back end flying off the road course. As part of my whole suspension package I plan on getting a 22mm rear sway bar with BSQ. I have not decided whether to go adjustable sway or not. I have 15x7 Rota slipstreams with BFG KDW2 tires. I also have a GSR strut bar I might put on.
Please let me know if there is a more appropriate site i.e. sccaforums.com to post this question. Would it be worth it to learn to string the car myself? From what Iíve heard you should let your springs settle when brand new before aligning the car.
