Alignment numbers post Swift Spring Install - feedback

Installed the Swift Spec-R Springs this past week and finally had a chance to get the car aligned today. I was hoping for -2 in the front (wishful thinking I know) but I'm fairly happy with the results. The pins are pulled, and gained -.3 degrees of camber in the front at each corner. Alignment before the spring install (no image) was at -1.5LF front and -1.6RF, so from a ~1" drop or so it's not bad.

I'll probably invest in some vorshlag plates at some point. Any feedback or suggestions are welcomed, car does see a fair amount of track time.

Below are a few details of the numbers.

Cool, thanks for the info. I was looking at these springs as well and was wondering how how much more camber i would get. Please let us know how they do at the track vs stock springs. Im holding off on my purchase until i see some good reviews.

hoping to get a track day soon, depending on work schedule at my home track to be able to compare properly. I have hopes that it will make a difference in cornering. How much? we'll find out.

Thanks

Interested in hearing your opinion. Swift springs might be on the to do list for me.
