Alignment Specifications
« on: May 20, 2008, 03:15:06 PM »
I just put in new Polygraphite bushings, ball joints, tierods, Hotchkis performance springs, and a larger sway bar. Off to the alignment shop I go...

I was wondering if I could get some feedback on the Alignment specs I should provide the shop. Currently, there are Polyglas bias tires on there (which may be changed at some point).

I am assuming I should give them the factory specs provided in the 69 Factory Service manual. Is there a better set of specs that I should use?

Thoughts are appreciated.

Have the alignment tech get all the positive caster he can. Go with the factory spec for toe-in with bias-ply tires, and if you switch to radials, reduce it to 1/16" total toe-in.
