Hi

I had a alignment done back in 2009 when she had 178.000km (110.604 miles). Now she has about 188.300km (117.004 miles). Not been driving much for a lot of reasons. Now I got the the ball bearing thing in the front changed (the whole shabang there) and I need a alignment.

Below is how it is now. And I do not want it to be like that. I'm used to go through a set of rear tires in 7000km (4330 miles) and I am okey with that.

However with the setup below I don't see if the tires are worn as the rear tires are worn on the inner inner inner side were I don't see it at all. I have had a puncture once because of this and I don't want that. The alignment was done with a computer rig of some kind with the data for the 1991 NSX there. This was how close to the specs he got and that is not what I want.

My NSX is a 1991. On lower perch. Got Bilsteins. 215/35/18 front and 265/30/19 back

Please let me know what I should have the garage to go for. I hope you guys understand more of this than I do

Your previous shop had absolutely no idea of how to adjust an NSX. :rolleyes: :eek: I'd ask my money back. They must be deaf, dumb and blind. It looks like they only adjusted Spissing (or toe). Caster is way out, even in the front. The camber is out of balance except RL.

There's only one excuse: your Bilsteins are too low but they should be able to adjust the values on the front at least.

If you take it easy (with 18/19 blingbling wheels) you better go to a conservative setup:

front toe -0.06
front caster 8
front camber -0.10

rear camber minimum but even on both sides
rear toe 0.07 or even 0.00

If you want a track-rat go the other way round.
