Need some alignment specs please

I have a 1990 GT vert w/ FORD A arms with global west bushings. Griggs torqe arms and panhard bar NO bumpsteer and MAX motorsports CC plates/ I dont autocross. Nitto DR out back and Falkens up front. I mainly hit the highway ramps hard and straight aways.

Id like to get a nice alignment thats a bit more aggressive than stock and wont kill my tires.

As much caster as your plates will allow, about 1ΒΊ to 1.5ΒΊ negative camber, 1/16" toe-in.

I agree with huesmann....those are pretty mild settings and should yield decent tire life. Too bad you can't rotate your tires front to rear, that would significantly increase tire life and is one of the reasons I run 275/40s all the way around on my Cobra.

Is that a 1/16" total toe in, or per side?

Thanks.
