West coast!
We all know a raised 4x4 NSX is definitely not cool nor does it look like the sports car it should so given that fact :tongue:, I will assume most nsx fans have lowered their rides.

However once the car is dropped at some point the factory specs cannot be maintained so I wanted to compare notes. Please use this format and let us know what you have on your alignment sheet after car is dropped. I recently had mine done after lowering the car more to fit my new shoes!

Guy says looks like I'll be buying 3 sets of rear tires for every set of front tires at this rate but that's ok...


Vehicle: 2004 white/onyx NSX
Rims: Volk GT-V in 19x9.5, 18x8 up front
Suspension: Tien Flex coilovers
Custom mods: NO

Front camber: 1.2
Front caster: 8.6
Front toe: -0.13

Rear camber: 3.2
Rear toe: 0.14
Total toe: 0.28

I had mine set to...

Front camber: 1.0 degrees
Front caster: 8.5 degrees
Front total toe: -1.0 mm

Rear camber: 1.0 degrees
Rear Total toe: 2.0 mm

A mild setup for good tire wear.

I forgot a critial note: be sure to indicate HOW LOW you are dropped or include one side-profile picture from car level! :)

I will snap a shot of my car later today since it looks sooo slammed with the new adjustments / alignment.

In the spec quoted above there are two different methods used for the Toe setting. RSO34 specified mm. Are the other specs I see i.e. -0.2, in degrees?

I have not done the math to prove the degrees vs. mm theory, but people may get confused trying to compare:).

do you guys get even wear on the front and rear tires?

I have mine lowered with eibach and conservative settings, but both the front and rear still wear more inside.
