    Default c7 GS alignment

    Does anyone know the correct alignment specs for a C7 GS or Z (street use only)?

    There are two sets of alignment specifications. One for FE1, FE2, FE3 and FE4 and a second set for FE5 and FE6?

    What suspension is on your car?

    Front Caster is 7.4° ±0.6°
    Front Camber is -0.6° L and -0.9° R ±0.6°
    Front Toe is 0.1° ±0.2°
    Rear Camber is -1.1°
    Rear Toe is 0° ±0.2°

    For street use only, you may find the camber settings too aggressive

    Thank you....are you saying -1.1 is too aggressive for street? If so, what should it be? I've read .6 is good.

    If better tread life is the goal, I'd go for -02.5 front camber and -05 camber in the rear.
