Default alignment specs

hey guys, could someone possibly post the modified alignment specs for a caprice with 20s. I remember seeing on the forum a while ago about fixing the general wandering of the car when you have 20s, but i cant find it. My 94 has brand new inner and outer tie rod ends, all other suspension is in good shape. I just did the alignment and had front toe at -.02 and +.02 with total toe at 0. i forget the caster and camber specs but they were within oe specs. The car drives straight and the steering wheel is straight but every once in a while it will wonder..either left or right. can anyone help?

Not sure if those are applicable to you or not. Its not really an issue with the tire size, but mods to the suspension that change ride height could make those specs difficult/impossible to achieve.

If the car isn't pulling consistently in one direction then your alignment should be fine. Road surfaces are very rarely exactly flat, which causes cars to pull one direction or another.

If you want to learn more about what the alignment measurements actually mean, read this.

wrt Toe in, is it measured in degrees or inches ? The FSM has degrees, 1/16 being about .06 as specified in the FSM.

Are the modified specs 1/16" to 1/8" ANOTHER 1/16" to 1/8" ?
