    Alignment specs

    Does anyone have access to the stock alignment specs for the CTS Vsport Premium?

    I'd like to check alignment as delivery alignment can be all over the place and I love tweaking mine a bit for handling.

    Re: Alignment specs

    So finally - here are the alignment specs for the CTS VSport (FE3 suspension), from the factory document:

    Camber: -0.5 deg +/- 0.8
    Cross Camber (L minus R): +/- 0.6 deg
    Caster: +6.3 deg +/- 0.6
    Cross Caster (L minus R): +/- 0.6 deg
    Total Toe: 0.2 deg +/- 0.2
    Steering Wheel angle: 0.0 deg +/- 3.5

    Camber: -0.9 deg +/- 0.8
    Total Toe: 0.3 deg +/- 0.2
    Thrust angle (L minus R)/2: 0.0 deg +/- 0.3

    Some fairly liberal tolerance on camber at both ends... caster, not so much.

    It always strike me as preposterous that OEMs will give specs that allow for positive camber. My Subaru is the same way.
