  • alignment specs for my 99 miata?

    Well, after reading about 40 different alignment post on 3 different miata websites, im still not sure on what to set it to. My car is a track/daily driver si cant have the tires wear out too quick. My set up; tein flex coilovers (front 10k rear 6k), Flying miata, sways (front stiff, rear soft) and i run 200/580/15 dunlop sp tires. Any help would be great, thanks.

    Use the first setting for less aggressive alignment.

          From what I understand, Lanny's and Icehawk's are autocross alignments.

            Good advice above. But if you're in SoCal just take it to West End and tell Darrin everything you said here and he'll know what's good for you...

            Edit: On second though, after seeing you write "tires wear out too quick", if by any chance your car is "hellaflush" or looks like below, you have bigger problems than tires wearing out too quick

                  That's a pretty nice "beater." Mariner blue didn't sell well, but I always thought it was cool.

                    i really did pay 800 for it. One owner in good running condition. It has rust (she brought it from the east coast) but its not too bad.

                    Thanks for the help guys, i just finished up the torsen swap today so ill be getting it aligned tomorrow or next week.
