Front end alignment

#1 Post by grandville455 » Tue Apr 22, 2014 4:33 pm

I have a appointment Friday to get the car aligned 74 firebird wondering how I should have them set it up? What do u guys recommend for numbers, Should I have the front raised a inch or two when their doing it etc.It also still has the stock arms and cross bar too, so probably limited on caster?
I also drive this on the street too

Thanks guys!!

As much caster as they can get in it, which won't be a lot with the stock arms. Zero camber and 1/8th toe-in are pretty typical specs. A couple inches up when setting it usually works well.
