    Smile suspension components used, etc. F-Body Auto-X applications

    It'd be nice to know what other people out there who are auto-xing their F-Body are using as far as suspension components and alignment settings go.
    This could probably be put in the suspension forum, but I put it here since I'm asking specifically for auto-X applications.

    I'm gonna add this because I don't think many people visit the A/X portion of this site. If you have questions involving suspension set-up, in general not just for A/X, I would consult Sam Strano. Sorry can't post the link since they aren't a sponsor, but the man is a National Champion and he uses a 4th gen F-body to do it. Not only that he knows what he's talking about and he is very easy to understand and very good at explaining things.

    For an alignment, a pretty extreme competition setting would be:

    1/32" to 3/32" Toe Out
    -1.3 to -1.5 Camber (whatever max is after the castor is set at 4.5)
    +4.5 Castor

    I run this on the street:
    0 Toe
    -0.7 Camber
    +4.5 Castor
