alignment specs

Took my car in to be aligned after lowering and they asked me for the alignment specs.

I checked Eibach's website and it says nothing about this.

Any help?

Shouldn't they just go back to the stock settings?

I know when I did the 4/6 drop on my truck, that is all they did.

I would try a different shop. Mine drove great after, but wasn't that far off either after the new spindles/springs were installed. Guess we got lucky with the eye setting....

On your pickup, the spindles would compensate for any alignment variations. If you lowered it with just springs, you will get crazy camber. Toe would probably be the only thing needed to be adjusted for the front with spindles. The rear suspension alignment does not change with lowering because it has a solid rear axle.

That was the reason I went with Spindles/springs verses using LCA's/spings (can't use LCA's/spindles). Seems to be the best to get that 4"s on the front. I don't have the alignment sheet anymore, it was in the glove box the day it was stolen (9/8/06). Still has not been recovered, gone for good.

Correct, no 4 wheel alignment needed, if so, you bent the frame. Back was easy, excect for the notch.

Here's the specs.

The only things that need adjustment are the toe and headlights if off. Front camber will go slightly negative, but not enough to worry about. Rear won't be affected at all.

SoCalHHR use to have the specs posted, because most shops did not have SPECS for HHR, at all.

They came with the Gold-Lines I purchased through SoCalHHR.

Not sure if he still around, or if that info is available, through one of the threads referencing lowering the HHR.

Later,
Mark

I will check at home, I should have them, they may be the same as posted above!

EDIT: The post above looks like what SoCalHHR use to provide!
