Front camber is as negative as it gets with pins removed.

Before I make a fool of myself at the shop which did my alignment today, can someone give me an idea of what the conversion should be for rear toe in terms of 3/32" to degrees for a ZCP 19" rear wheel -- 26.3" diameter? I'm pretty certain I've plugged the right number into conversion calculators but wanted to confirm from the peanut gallery.

Nevermind. Got this sorted out after an interesting discussion with the shop where they confused a few conversion points which substantially affected the initial result. I think they feel a little embarrassed at this point but all is good.

Oh man, waiting in the car for the cornerbalance was excruciating but their workmanship is top notch. Chris did all the work and was just hustling everywhere to get me out ASAP haha

Usually you would want some toe in at the rear.

I like oversteering... but I understand some toe in at the rear is usual.

The E9x rear suspension doesn't deflect nearly as much as the E36/46 rear suspension design did, so you can run less rear toe.

I'm at nearly zero rear toe too, but will add some prior to tracking the car. It points like no body's business on the street! Might be a bit much to handle on the track...lol

Just installed KW sleeves. I'm worried I still have too much toe after the alignment (compared to other guys in this thread). FYI, I'm not tracking the car (at least not yet). Can anyone provide insight?

R: 19x11 +27

Tires

R: 295/30/19

Before
Camber: -1.7* (LF)/ -1.9* (RF)/ -1.8* (LR)/ -2.0* (RR)
Caster: 7.0* (LF)/ 6.8* (RF)
Toe: 0.17* (LF)/ 0.16* (RF)/ 0.37* (LR)/ 0.26* (RR)
Total Toe: 0.32* (F)/ 0.63* (R)
Steer Ahead: 0.00* (F)
Thrust Angle: 0.05* (R)

After
Camber: -1.7* (LF)/ -1.7* (RF)/ -1.7* (LR)/ -1.7* (RR)

For front camber challenged stock non-zcp car (limited to -1.4 with pins pulled), what is a good rear camber? -1.5?

I left mine at stock settings (was about 1.7 rear) when I was autocrossing it semi-seriously. Standing it up slightly might help with on-throttle behavior at corner exit a bit but I never felt like I needed help there, but different situation as I was on 295/315 Hoosiers so frontend grip was ample. If anything a little more camber would have been helpful based on rear outside edge wear, but was afraid to add any and ruin balance

E92 M3 competition package
stock suspension with front factory alignment aid pins removed
stock competition package wheels with bridgestone potenzas on at the moment (fairly worn, need new tires)
-1.7 camber front L/R (max negative)
-1.9 camber rear L/R (within factory range)
front toe within factory range (not sure of number)
rear toe within factory range (not sure of number)
Aligned with a full fuel tank and a very light load in the trunk, centered. Unsure if driver was in driver seat during alignment.

I'll see if I can get a full set of numbers.

Rides nice, corners better than at factory front settings.

Will post tire wear after I put new tires on and get a good amount of miles on them.

I like how your setup is so simple and have sent you a PM.
