So i've been lurking here since a few days before I pulled the trigger on my GS. I forgot to ask for the before and after specs until I was paying and they had already been blown out, the mechanic did remember what they were though...
First here's a few shots of before and after:
Sorry they're not at the same angle, I was kind of antsy to get these springs on. They didn't even leave my porch where they were delivered, box was opened where the delivery guy left them and they went in!
So it seems when our rear suspension compresses, the toe angle aims in. I suppose to keep the car aiming straight as the suspension gets loaded up. So the toe was really bad! I had:
-1.1 degrees of camber in front,
-2.1 degrees in the rear
-.62 degrees of toe on the rear
Final was the same except for -.12 degrees of toe on the rear. The mechanic said I would've chewed through these rear tires in about 3k miles had I not aligned it. I let the springs settle for almost 500 miles, would've done it a lot sooner had I known the toe was that far in. The car drove perfectly straight...
