Default Recommended alignment specs?

Tires are here and wheels will be delivered this Friday! I hope to get them mounted and balanced Saturday.

Somewhere on the forum I once ran across suggested alignment for the setup I'm putting on but I cannot find the numbers in a post.

What I have are RE-11 tires 265/35/19F and 305/30/19R on a set of M590 Avant Garde 19x9.5 +20F and 19x11 +18R (not 100% sure on wheel offsets since it has been so long ago that I ordered them and went with Jason's recommendation at GetYourWheels).

The specs that I remembered seeing was around -2.0 degrees camber on the fronts and about -.5 on the rear. Does this sound right? Can these settings be achieved with the stock suspension?

I'm interested in spirited street and autoX settings. My Z is supercharged and hopefully will hit the 450rwhp range.

Simple answer is no. You need at a minimum adjustable front upper control arms. I know -1.0 in possible on stock suspension in the rear.

For what you want to do. My setting should get you into the ball park.
I'm running -2 camber, +7 caster, zero toe for the front. -1.75 camber and 1/16" toe for the rear. So you need adjustable front control arms. In the rear if you are not lowered. You can still use the stock stuff.

Thanks guys. I'll check with Z1 about their adjustable front control arm. Looks like they have the bugs out of it now.

The car is not and will not be lowered. I'm scraping the road already getting in and out of parking lots.
