Call Charlie at Intersport for the 411 on this. I doubt if most owners even know their alignments just be sure to explain what you want I.e. street/ de, de/street etc.

Max out the negative camber maintaining equal left and right and see what you get. It is somewhat chassis dependent. Probably will be less than 2 degrees. I added front camber plates which gave closer to 2.5. More than this will need a control arm upgrade. My front toe is 0.0. Rear is 0.15.

Tire wear has been notably improved with the increased camber.

I guess I’m unclear on your definition of “stock”

well it has PASM from the factory

it does not have gt3 lca or anything of that sort, so extreme negative camber is not going to be possible
