With all the new component's you have. Plus I assume you replaced all your bushing.
1/16 will do.

I had Belle Tire set my car up with 1/16 toe in and I had some pretty severe corner entry understeer. Mid corner thru the exit it was fairly neutral, but it just didn't want to turn in. I was thinking the main culprit was the toe in, and I was planning on setting it to zero toe next time out. No?

Perhaps you could try reducing corner entry speed first, But, a little toe out will help turn-in because it sort of increases ackerman by giving youmore toe-out while tuning. Running more negative camber and more positive caster will also help increase grip while cornering.

Yup . . . all these things are on my list. Somebody above seemed pretty adamant againt toe out, so I was mostly questioning their statement. I'm running max -camber and +caster, but Belle Tire could only get -1.7Cam and 2.8CAS out of it. I thought they should be able to get more with my CC plates. I'm wondering if they are installed correctly. Reducing corner entry speed is one of the main things I'm going to work on next time out too, I noticed the same problem driving our 05 car a couple weeks ago.
