Wink Alignment Results: Lowered on Swift Springs

Whats good guys, Just got my alignment after lowering my car with swift springs, and buying new tires. I have attached my results sheet for you guys to judge and see. My front right and rear left were pretty bad, but they tried their best to get it close to specs.

-Swift springs (lowered an inch and a half all around overall)
-20mm spacers all around (if that matters?)
-Bridgestones Potenza's RE-11s all around 245F/285R
-NO CAMBER ARMS

I cheap'd out, didn't get a camber kit. oh well.

The RE-11's are the best tires i've ever used. I came from some Conti's Extreme Contacts 235s 275s, but yea.. huge difference and better grip.

any feedback would be cool and hope this helps anyone else. Always get an alignment after messing with your suspension!

Shoutout to 714Tires in Orange County, 75 bucks for this "custom" alignment job. Great people.

Front camber doesn't look all that bad, but your rears are pretty far negative. You'll lose some traction off the line since your effective contact patch with that much camber will be pretty small. And yes, alignments after monkeying with suspension are always a good idea.

yea they did mention that when they finished up with it regarding the rear tires. Im hoping the rear tires hold up pretty good though

If you light up your tires often; the insides are gonna wear quick.

You'll be lucky to get 7,500 miles on you rear tires.

Get a rear camber kit installed. It's a heck of a lot cheaper than a pair of rear tires.
