Merged duplicate threads.

As far as alignment settings, have them set the toe to the minimum settings as shown in the specs.
Camber is virtually non-adjustable on these cars.
What little is available, again, have them set it at the minimum as shown in the specs.
The above is primarily to eliminate any tire wear issues, while preserving the excellent handling capabilities of the car.
Though...as you found out, take it easy in the snow.

But...First...have them do a decent check on all vital front end components to make sure nothing is bent or damaged.
You may also pull your wheel off and have it checked to see if it's bent or not.
