BA XR8 Wheel Alignment Settings, Please..

I just found out that my car has positive camber (though only 0.1°) on the left front wheel, and right is only marginally negative (-0.2°). I would have thought that it should have at least -1° camber??

I can only find toe-in numbers in the user's manual. If anyone has access to the full set of wheel alignment numbers (ie. camber and castor front, and rear camber), please post.

Re: BA XR8 Wheel Alignment Settings, Please..

To find the ride height do the following:

Measure vertically from the exact centre of the wheel
to the underside of the guard lip. Standard ride height for the XR at kerb weight should be circa 370 mm.

Thanks for the figures, Russ. I presume "variation" means production tolerance? ±0.7° seems excessively generous, and means I can't take it back to the dealer to have it corrected...

No figures on castor or rear camber?

Will post the rear settings when time permits along with the other model settings.
The tolerance is the + / - that is acceptable.

Cheers
