Fast road alignments

I currently have tein coilover on my 4, with camber top mounts on the front and also camber bolts on the front. I also have polybush castor bushes in the front arms and also polybush bushes in the rear arms.
I'm also running 25mm spacers on 9.5x17 wheels with 235/45/17 ns2r tyres.
I'm about to get some adjustable rear camber arms that I will fit and then attempt full alignment set up.
So Im hoping you guys can provide me with some alignment settings with regard to what camber, castor and toe I should be aiming for.
The car isnt used on track, its mainly my fun weekend blast.

Thanks in advance.

Cheers Aj

I've just fitted some ohlins to mine and I found an old thread by Mr Ralliart and found these settings, granted these are for slightly more track orientated but I think I will use these as a starting point.

3 deg negative camber at the front and 1.5 deg rear
1/8" or zero toe at the front, rear zero
maximize caster

Yeh iv been looking through a few old threads but as you say they all seem to be track orientated and I'm looking more for a fast road set up.
But thank you for your settings, appreciate the help. The camber seems alittle high for road use though? I would assume the front tyres won't last too long at 3 degrees but I don't know.

Cheers Aj

Provided you have zero toe, a fair bit of camber won't wear the tyres out unduly.
Aim for -2° front camber or even -2.5° and zero toe and test to see how that suits you.

Hi mate. Is that just for the front? What should I be aiming for at the rear? From what I have read zero toe again but what about camber?

Cheers Aj

For the rear, to compliment the fronts suggestion above, I'd suggest -1.5° camber and zero toe.

For a fast road setup you can start off with:

Front Camber: -2°
Rear Camber -1°

Front toe: 0°
Rear toe: 0° (-1° might be not bad if the roads you drive on faster sweepers)

Caster: I would leave it original

What tyres are you running and at what pressures?

I can't believe you actually mean -1deg of rear toe (ie -1deg of toeing out) as that would be lethal!! Perhaps you meant -1mm? But even so that's probably not suitable for normal road going car situation.

If it’s a road car and not a track car I’d want a bit of toe in on rear for straight line stability at high speeds.

I currently have 235/45/17 ns2r on my car and currently running 32psi front and 30psi rear.

So I should be aiming for alittle toe in at the rear, could anyone confirm how much for me?

Cheers Aj

But that equates to 8mm of toe on a 17" or 18" rim!! 1mm is equivalent to 8' (8 minutes or 8/60th of 1 degree) which would be more reasonable.
