    I have Eibach Sportlines on my car (paired with Ford Racing dampers and BMR sway bars) and my car is aligned very closely to the recommended specs on the Ford Racing track handling pack. If I get a chance today, I'll post up my alignment printout.

    Wouldn't one just align it to the spec for a street driven vehicle? Maybe some additionall front camber?

    You can go with the base specs or PP specs...I wouldn't go any more aggressive for a street car.

    I would love to see those specs. I had mine aligned recently and it feels out of wack. I have the printout and I'm curious how it compares to yours.

    Here's my alignment spec sheet from a couple months ago on my daily driver S550. I'm on Eibach Pro springs with Koni Yellow shocks/struts. I'm lowered about an inch all around.

    I was worried that I might need CC plates or camber bolts up front, but they were able to get it within specs without either. Alignment 080516 resize.jpg

    I have attached the 2016 Factory Specs. If you look through this document you will see what we personally found to be true, the R model has much less rear camber and that is for a reason.

    Thanks for posting specs. The factory have a lot of variance in the specs. That's why I want to see what people's specs are on a street car. KEEP POSTING:thumbsup:

    So I finally got around to finding my alignment sheet. The first picture is from the Ford Racing track handling pack instructions. It shows the recommended alignment specs for both the stock 2015 GT as well as one with the Ford Racing track handling pack. The second picture is my personal car's alignment. It has Eibach Sportlines, Ford Racing dampers, and BMR sway bars. I do NOT have any CC plates or camber bolts, etc.. Please ignore the fact that the top of my alignment sheet lists "2012-2014"; my alignment was done at a Ford dealer (one of the few places that said they could get my car up on the rack), and the 2015 was not listed in the computer at the time.

    You can see that, overall, the alignment is very close to the Ford Racing specs: front camber is basically spot on, total toe is spot on, and rear camber is actually a little less than they recommend (I asked for this spec). All of this was done with no CC plates or camber bolts. If you want to get to the factory recommended specs, you may need them, however. My car is not a DD, so I don't mind at all.

    Hope that helps!

    EDIT: For some reason, the attachment with my alignment is not showing up in the post. Looks like you may have to download it. Not sure what the issue is. If no one else can see it, I'll try taking a picture of it and posting that. FRPP alignment specs.png
