View Full Version : Alignment for B6 A4 1.8tqm

Anyone have OE specs for alignment, and also a good spec for mostly street and some track and auto-x?
I know I won't be able to get all the way to OE spec with coilovers dropped a little, but I'm hoping to get opinions on numbers fr/rr to take to shop and try to get as close as they can.... however hopefully numbers that will be a little more aggressive than OE without excessive tire wear.

NM.... search is your friend.
Found this, which came from Stasis

What are your recommended alignment specifications?
A: Alignment settings are dependent on many factors including acceptable tire wear, the amount of straight line highway driving versus twisting street driving and the overall goal of the car. So first it is important to decide what types of driving the car will mostly do and what sacrifices you are willing to make. The following are 3 basic recommendations. The first is for a conservative street setup, the second an aggressive street setup and the third a track setup. First it's worthwhile to understand the tradeoffs of each setting. Toe: zero toe (or even toe out) is great for turns, but you sacrifice straight line stability. Camber: negative front camber is great for turns, but you sacrifice uneven tire wear and require more frequent mounting and balancing (and rotation) to keep tire wear manageable. Also, with the OEM solid upper control arms, your camber will be a factor of ride height. With adjustable upper control arms, ignore the ride height recommendations and set camber accordingly.

Conservative Street Setup
Between 1/16 and 1/32 TOE IN front and 1/32 TOE IN rear
Ride height at 25.875” front and 26.000” rear
(–1.0 camber front)

Aggressive Street Setup
Between 1/32 and 0 TOE IN on all four corners
Ride height at 25.500” front and 25.625” rear
(–1.5 to –1.75 camber front)

Track Setup
Between 0 and 1/16 TOE OUT on all four corners
Ride height at 25.000” front and 25.250” rear
(–2.0 to –3.0 camber front)

WARNING! The Track Setup alignment recommendations are not for the street and will result in serious straight line instability. STaSIS accepts no responsibility with its alignment suggestions.
