    After Fitting Coilovers ............

    Did you need to have wheel alignment & camber done ?

    My coupe chewed up a brand new set of tyres up in 6 months
    steady driving and worn more on the inner, rears are fine tho

    Yep

    I always get tracking and camber checked after the suspension and been removed and refitted as there is so much adjustment

    not sure of a place in your area but i pay 65 + vat. it gets set up to minutes of a degree and i get a printout of the angles before and after.

    a decent one should do.

    but if not this is what my coupe settings are.

    Total front toe 0 degrees 10'
    front wheel toe 0 degrees 05'
    front castor 4 degrees
    front camber - 1 degree 10'

    rear total toe 0 degrees 25'
    rear wheel toe 0 degrees 12.5'
    rear camber - 1 degree 40'

    thrust angle and steer ahead should be 0
