So with that set up, what does that give you? I’m about to get mine set up and likely to go for standard set up, as I’m running all OEM parts, other than whiteline ARBs, adjustable f/r drop links, TTRS top mounts and Powerflex anti lift kit??

The last alignment check I had with lowering springs and superpro anti lift kit it was around -1.2 degree negative camber. Adding the ball joints gave an extra -1 degree.

Thanks Sean,
With that -1.2 degree negative camber, what does that do to the steering. I'm a bit lost with all the various settings, hence interested to know :-)
What's the standard set up??

Cheers
Louie

Steering is not really affected unless running a more aggressive alignment so no worries there.

Not quite sure what standard setup is , think it’s -1 degree front and -1.4 degree on the rear. The anti lift kit gives a tiny increase but without adjustable ball joints or top mounts the camber will be fairly fixed on the front and any adjustment will be done by shifting the sub frame.

Standard is -0.55 camber at the front and not far off -2 at the rear.
