allignment specs

hi there, i have a v6 6mt sedan and am going to be getting an allignment done this spring. i am just wondering what specs i should be trying to aim for? i am all stock other than the base TL rear sway bar. im hoping to try and get some negative camber on the front and i guess have close to 0 on the rear as from what i understand they cant be adjusted much. what about other specs such as toe/caster? any suggestions? not a track car but driven aggressively on corners so any bit would help and from what i understand the car is set up very conservatively.

Wherever you take it make sure the tech knows the relationship between the position of the subframe and alignment of the car.

If your looking to get more handling out of your car, dont look immediately to your alignment. Invest in some stiffer suspension and lower your car. The more you lower it, the more your alignment will change. You dont want to worry about toe or caster unless your tuning a track car. When you go to get an alignment, if the guy knows what he's doing, he will automatically fix any wierd caster/toe readings. If your car HAS been lowered then he will notify you that your car is showing readings of negative camber. Which is the one aspect of your alignment that may improve your handling. It will also wear out your tires faster than normal. He will not be able to tamper with your car's camber unless you have an adjustable camber kit. I know this because just recently i got my alignment on my slammed 6th gen and my readings were pretty effed up. My wheels were all toed out and i had lots of uneven camber. He fixed the toe and made sure the caster was good. But of course couldnt touch the camber. Hope this helps!

How was the ride after you got the wheel alignment? My accord is slammed too and I want to get an alignment but havent gotten a camber kit yet. Would it be worth it?

Yes. Im in the market for a camber kit right now because i have very uneven negative camber:

-2.2 left front____________ -2.5 right front

-2.8 left rear____________ -3.2 right rear

for me the ride was basically the same except my steering wheel was acting weird before my alignment and now it feels more responsive.
