Does the diagram look remotely close to a track alignment? I gave them the performance track prep sheet. But couldnt get the fronts to -2.0 without flipping the struts.
No not close. Front way off but the rear still needs more.

The rear looks like it's at the recommended spec, but front camber isn't there. Car will probably understeer a lot with that alignment. There's no way to "flip the struts" with OEM parts, that's only on the ZL1 1LE top mounts from the factory. I'm guessing the alignment tech only loosened the strut-knuckle bolts and didn't push them out to disengage the splines. Without that step they wouldn't have been able to do any real camber adjustment.

THat's the sort of work that I'm shopping to avoid which is it's in the green and that's good enough, which it is indeed OK but it's not what you want. Shops don't want to or don't know how to get the - camber and then adjust the toe.

I think that for a "speed shop" that looks terrible, I might expect that from some mainline auto shop but you put "speed" in your name and it's

Yeah, i did notice a little understeer while in touring mode. I forgot to mention they broke a rear camber bolt and charged me for the replacement. Total i paid $220 for that alignment job.


Unfortunately it was recommended to me by another fellow camaro owner, but im staying away from that shop for sure. Seemed more of a "Backyard Mechanics Den" than a speedshop given the way they were working all sitting indian style under the car and no drive on lift.

Snapping bolts on a brand new car and charging the customer for it? What the hell?

Damn that sucks. PM me and we can adjust your front camber if you want.
