Thanks for the advice. I advice i appreciate it
By running more static negative camber, you're reducing the tyre contact patch, in a straight line.

Spot on

It's a lot to get your head round to begin with.

What would you recommend for sprints and fast road after this then?

Front :
Start at Neg 2 deg 30mins camber = neg 2.50 deg camber - reduce, if excessive tyre wear.
Use the front and rear tyre pressures and the smallest bars possible, to get the balance you like.
If your bars aren't giving you quite the balance you want, then:
0.04mins = 0.07deg Toe-in per side, sharper turn-in - might induce mid-corner understeer
0.04mins = 0.07deg Toe-out per side, if car too responsive or twitchy. Turn-in less sharp. Gives throttle controlled oversteer.

Leave the rear as is.

Well i tried to set my rear toe to toe in as it was toe out quite a bit which wasnt great, not knowing how each notch on the adjuster bolt was measured i went on the 4th notch and went for a free alignment check, my rear toe in is now currently at 40 minutes. im guessing that will eat my rear tyres in no time ?

Cheers

Yeah I hear you , will redo it onto the 1st notch as I'm guessing each notch is around 10 minutes of adjustment on the standard bolt / washer . Is it worth having slight toe in over 0 for a daily driver ?

When you were having you free check, couldn't you have had it tweaked then?

Yes, a little toe in for DD

Ok thanks

yeah I could of had it tweaked but at 30 for the tweak of the bolt I thought I will have a go myself for now until after payday

currently the front is all ok but I'm assuming if I remove 30 minutes of toe in this will throw the fronts out and I will need front tracking doing again ?

You need to find a more friendly alignment shop

If it's 30 all-in with the VAT then acceptable I guess to get things all spot on?

Well it was 29.95 for adjustment of front or rear but then if Rear needed it was then 47 , I thought if they adjusted just rear it would throw out the front which would warrant the 47 not 29.95 for just a rear alignment ?!?!

Either wsy way I was looking at 30 or nearly 50 lol

Having seen your, briefly, posted alignment - your front and rear camber is in desperate need of adjustment as well

They're not adjustable at the rear, unless using aftermarket camber bolts. Front has camber bolts as oem.
But, there is play in the rear strut, lower, bolt holes when you slack off the 2 lower bolts, each side.
Your only 36mins apart at the rear - with pushing and prying, you could even that camber out.

Yeah mine seems to have the same oem lower shock bolts as the front


I initially only had a front setup done hence the rear not being equal , if I now wanted the rears doing I would have to pay the whole amount again to have it all done

I'm happy with how it is , my rear toe could be a smudge less I was aiming for positive 15 so not bad via guesstimate to get 24 I'm hoping it won't wear rear tires much more if any than if it were at positive 15 ?

cheers

Forgive me if this is obvious, but it's late & I am done in: If I am reading the below quote correctly is flipping that alignment bolt a free anti-lift kit?

*When I say "free anti-lift kit" I mean will I get the same (or a similar amount of) caster for fcukall 's

Cheers

With the pin flipped 180 deg and he added a plate for even more caster:

I have finally got all the suspension work done on my '03 WRX . Have Pedders on now. I live in Hull. Best nearest place to get geometry set up done? Are Kwik Fit fairish?? Last time I had it done was at Litchfield. Don't really want to travel that far again.
