Anybody have the factory alignment specs for the 05 GT?

I'm putting the car in the body shop to fix the deer damage, and they're supposed to check the alignment since the car took a hit on the front end.

I was considering having them set a little more negative camber in to improve the handling, but I don't want to go too far and make the tires wear out too quickly. I drive about 250-300 miles/week.

Thump_rr - you seem to be pretty suspension-informed, what do you think? The car's stock otherwise, right now.

Thanks!!

How did you know it was off on toe?
The alignment machine told me? see pic.of car on Aligner above, and here http://home.comcast.net/~psc777/FEA2.JPG sorry dont have what my specs were, but l/f toe was at the end of the spec at .15 I wanted it to be perfect.
We see alot of new cars come from the dealer out of specs, maybe due to tie down in shipping? I dunno.

I told the guys to set mine at the negative end of the "acceptable" camber range. Hopefully, this gives me a little edge on handling, but doesn't wear the tires TOO fast.


Thanks Stoenr!

Just rotate them often, if not a staggerd set up. You should be fine. Let me know how it feels. I did this on my t-bird once for giggles, and it made the steering feel tighter, slightly more responsive. Can you say Nascar!:laughlitt
