    cheep alignment tools

    Longacre has a refub catalog. I got a digital camber/caster gauge and a toe in gauge for less than $200 since they were last year's models. Little more than the cost of an alignment at a shop

    And shockingly - the rear was pretty much perfect, we didn't touch it (1/16" total toe in, 1.2' camber each corner). Considering that the last time an alignment was done was before I changed our the rear hubs from stock pieces to Palatovs, that was pretty crazy.

    The front was embarrassing how far off it was. Positive toe - a HUGE amount (like 1.3" or something crazy). Camber was all of .4 and .7. Surprised it was even drivable, but its been this was for quite some time, Laguna seca, Infineon the year before, a couple track days at ORP... I can't even fathom how much faster the car might be with the tires pointed in the right direction, LOL.

    Adjusted to 1/8" total toe OUT (maybe a little less) and 1.3" camber each side. If its too darty I know exactly how much I need to adjust to neutral the toe.

    Thanks for the link and tip. This is something I want to be able to do myself.
