Help: Alignment Specs for E90 M3 with Megan Springs

Air Force Weenie Could use some help. I need the alignment specs after I lower my E90 M3 with Megan Racing Lowering Springs. Does anyone have that information. Megan claims a 1.5 inch drop but I am not holding my breath. I am guessing 1 inch drop all the way around. What would be the alignment specs so I can have BMW of Huntsville lower my car. My tech said they would put it back to stock setting, That is hard to believe too. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

John

welcome, search is your friend and be sure to utilize all the categories of this forum.
this question probably would have been best to ask in the suspension/brake/chassis
section. i would be put off from using that dealer if they do not know the factory
alignment specs. here is your answer after a quick search and good luck.

Thanks so much for the information. I am getting the car lowered this Tuesday and hope they add some negative camber in the front and rear. The Megan Springs only lower the car 1 inch in the front and .8 in the rear. It is not significant, just enough to take that uncool gap out. I am guessing since it is not a coilover setup that back to stock should be okay. Will post if my tires wear out in 5000 miles.

Thanks again

They should have no problems getting your car aligned to stock specs. Stock alignment is what you need with more neg front camber
