I've seen quite a few different recommendations for alignment specs. -0.5 for the camber seems to be standard, but the caster recommendations run a bit wider, as does the toe. What works for youse guys?

Also, can anyone recommend a good alignment shop in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia?

Yes, I've moved out of Norf Dakota. Happy Days are Here Again.

I use the specs that Tony Branda advertises and used a local Kramer tires,and they cussed the whole time with my car so low with large tires.But they did a fine job.I know some people on that side of the water and will try to get some opinions on a good shop.

Sam, of "Sam's Place" fame, lives in Hampton. I'm suprised he hasn't chimed in yet. Hhhhhmmmm............May need to shoot him an e-mail. You two are now in the same neck of the woods. We may be there sooner than later.

Oh Exhaust work would be Big Al's..

mustangs68,

I'm in need of some professional exhaust intervention. Which Big Al's? There's one in Hampton and two in Newport News.

Thanks,
