Simple alignment advice

bought this 01 coupe as a DD

springs etc all OEM

LCA's were shot
pressed in front bushes, rears ok replaced struts,

BJ's meh
tie rod outers, meh

drove around the block to settle

ain't broke out my laser, just lookin,

I have mega front toe
and a good bit of rear camber

I generally prefer 0 and -0.5 on the rear and 1/16 out and -1.5 front on my speed for DD

whats reasonable on a Civic coupe?????


BTW, saw the struts an thought WTF, but, really kinda liking the straight shot steering rack geometry. actually like it a lot

If you think a good mechanic is expensive, try hiring a bad one

Re: Simple alignment advice

Those were specs from the book for an 01-02.
Later Civics upped the caster a smidge.
