Focus Alignment

Does anyone know what the caster/camber/toe settings are with a stock ZX3 and how 1.5" lowering springs affects these settings?
Has anyone installed/adjusted with caster/camber plates?

Thanks.

1.5" lowering springs really don't effect it too much. i had the h&r 1.5" springs on my zx3, and never had any problems with oddly worn tires or anything. sorry that i don't have any official numbers for you or anything, but um... yeah.

Springs may increase camber & decrease your handling. I recommend the camber correction kits & shocks if you get springs.

springs

anybody want some intrax. thats the last thing left from our various test suspensions for the race car. also as far as camber adjustments. currently using the fc control arms up front, adjusters in rear. we run 2 degrees neg front, 1 degree rear. car is currently being torn apart again (different cage for next year). if time allows my shop will be making true caster/camber plates for the top of the strut towers ala ground control. also may come up with a better lower control arm for the front. i've already had one f/c arm snap, although not on track (close thou-we were putting car on trailer to go racing).
