2010KonaBlueGT Posted February 26, 2011 Report Share Posted February 26, 2011 I'm in the process of installing a Shelby (BMR) K-member and Shelby (BMR) Non-adjustable A-arms. BMR gives me what *they* say are alignment specs but they seem to be WAYYY out of whack, at least since the last time I aligned a car. BMR says: OE ALIGNMENT SPECFICATIONS FRONT; SPECIFICATION TOLERANCE CAMBER: -0.75 degrees .50 degrees CASTER: 7.10 degrees .50 degrees TOE: 0.10 degrees 0.20 degrees Now I don't kwow about anyone else, but I have NEVER seen a car that requires SEVEN degrees (+/- .5d) of Caster. It may be possible, but that seems extreamly high to me. Maybe the GT500 just needs a lot of Caster to get the wheels back straight.... Also, I've NEVER used a alignment machine, nor seen a spec for Toe that is anything other than fraction of inches. Typically 1/8" toe-in, or something similar to that. So none of this makes any sense to me. I will set my initial caster/camber/toe the old fashioned way (a level and a string) so I can get my car into a alignment shop to get a 4-wheel alignment but....SEVEN degrees of Caster and. -9.29-+0.30 DEGREES of toe? Does anyone have a service manual that can give me the FORD recommend spec for front end alignment adjustments? Thank you, Phill Pollard Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
