How much did they lower the car overall?
You got some very decent camber out of the front without plates. Did you pull the pins?

Thanks - yes they pulled the pins to max out camber on the front without plates. Very happy with the result. Feels very good. Will have to double check the actual drop, but I asked them for between .5" to .75".

AP Racing BBK was also installed today as well!

It seems like everyone posting their alignment specs are on coilovers and dropped well over 1". Anybody have specs after just a spring install?

For stock suspension (pins pulled), I am at 1.2-1.3 front and 2.0 rear. Need to dial back the rear a bit I think, but disappointed I didn't get more up front.

So did they get it back to spec after the Eibach install? Those sheets only show the factory spec but it doesn't show what your actual numbers were.

These sheets are from when I knocked the alignment out on the stock set up. The original dealer aligned me to 335 specs, which are different. Another dealer faxed me the specs shown on this sheet. When I had the Eibachs added, the new specs lined up with these specs limits - they didn't even comment that the car had been dropped a little. The car has been aligned twice since the install - once immediately afterwards, and again after I hit a kerb hard during a track day and knocked the alignment out slightly enough to be irritating. I don't have the before/after spec sheet any more

After my Eibach install here is what I aligned the car to:

0 toe front, with a touch of toe in for the rear (1/32 in each side)

-1.4 degrees of camber up front and -1.7 degrees in the rear.

This is at the ride height almost exactly what Eibach quotes 0.8" lower in the front and 0.6" lower in the. I also have 15mm/12mm spacers.

Where are you guys getting your alignments done? The dealership? If so what are they charging you?

Stay away from the dealer, they will charge you a lot and want to keep it at factory specs.

Thanks with that being said is there anyone in the Delaware area that any of you guys have used and recommended. I could also use a shop recommendation for the spring install. Thanks!
