The video on the alignment if anyone wants to see how to kit performs, still need to check the accuracy of the kit and my errors with an alignment rack.

Curious on how close the alignment is. May pick up a kit for me if it's close enough. Enjoy the videos a bunch. Keep in coming.

Got an alignment check done
The specs I set with the kit

FR Camber -2.6 Caster 2.8 Toe out 1/32nd
FL Camber -2.6 Caster 3.2 Toe out 1/32nd

Total front Toe 1/16th of an inch out


RR Camber -1.5 Toe 0

LR Camber -1.4 Toe 0


Actual specs

FR Camber -2.7 Caster 2.8 Toe out 0

FL Camber -2.7 Caster 3.0 Toe out 0

Total front Toe 0


RR Camber -1.5

LR Camber -1.3
Rear toe 1/32nd in


I maxed out Camber in the rear and went a little bit too much in the front after playing with the ride height and it increasing the camber, but I'm just going to stay where it is.



After redoing the Toe when I got home I saw what I did wrong and just rushed my measurements and corrected it. I may get another check just to make sure I'm good now, but it got me closer than some alignment shops have in the past.

That's close. Well worth a couple hundred. I'll have to pick one up.

Yeah it definitely seems like it's worth it seeing as it pays for itself after three alignments.

Installed my OMP Steering wheel and NRG quick release that I got from rally.build. I love the feel of the wheel, really changes driving the car. It's a little small for how slow the rack is on the car but that'll be fixed once I get around to doing the column quickener.







also got some "cheap" gravel tires from zestino to mount on the Method wheels and test fit them on the car and I threw on some Rally Armor mud flaps I had sitting in my garage for the past year or so from my STi

Here's the install of the OMP wheel and hub


Unfortunately the Rallycross I've been planning on going to tomorrow was canceled, so I rushed a bunch of stuff and prep to get it ready for no reason.

I would imagine your neighbor wouldn't mind you rallying his yard to test out the new upgrades.

There is a really nice dirt road behind the neighborhood that goes to a site they've been pulling dirt from for all the development.. I usually find myself back there once a week or so..
