I've been doing my own alignments for years in my garage, and since I'm new to rwd Corollas. (I'm a former Datsun 510 guy.. Hey it was the early '90s when you could still get nice 510's for 300 dollars...) I'm wondering what a good camber/caster/toe-in starting points for TE/AE72 are. I don't plan on drifting, or road racing... Just a mix of commuting and the occasional trip through the twisties. My 'rolla's been lowered using GTS suspension, welded LSD axle on coil overs and camber plates.

I hear alot of drifter peoples like to run -1.5 camber, stock caster (+3.5) with 0 toe in om their DD's.

When I was owning nothing but Datsuns, I ran -1.0 camber, some caster (+2.5) and 1/16 toe in. I'd use that setting but I'm not sure how this would work with a solid axle, and the much better front suspensions 72's have.

Anyone know what the factory alignment specs are for 72's?

I say "play with it" adding some camber is going to give you better responce..

Thanks.. I've been playing around with it for a few days now. I'm discovering that -1.5 camber, +2.5 caster, and 1/16 toe in seems to work pretty good for street.

Now I'm at -1 degree camber, stock caster, and 1.5mm toe in. Seems to work alittle better for the street.. :-D
