NC wheel alignment

Postby AZ Sun Lover » Mon Jan 17, 2011 1:06 pm

Another wheel alignment question for a DD, my wife's. Her 07 MX-5 is now tracking in the groves in the road. I search and read for over an hour but couldn't find info I was looking for.
We are looking for good tire wear.
The car is setting about an 1" lower front & about 1/2 lower in the rear. It has a base RX-8 front sway & a sport RX-8 rear sway w/ urethane bushings. 7.5" wheels w/ 225 tires.
So I'm *guessing* more neg camber on the front than the rear, tow-in at ? front & rear.
My question is how much camber F & R and how much tow-in F & R? Mazda spec numbers all over the place.
Only thing I can gather was the camber should be just a little more on the front and a little more tow-in on rear.

Thanks for you time.

Tramline is the issue, Toe-in is the answer. Do 1/8th total toe in front and rear.

Brian,
Thanks for the reply.
The alignment shop said the car had too much toe-in.
