  • alignment specs

    Im looking for alignment specs. I plan to take the mustang to have the front end all setup after I get my go fast parts put together from Alex. Allthough I would love to have it setup for just drag racing, real world will limit me at this time to a mostly street and track once in a while deal. I am going to be running mostly stock front end parts with a set of roller perches and adjustable front strut rods. No shelby drop either.

    Since Im going to pay the money for a good shop to set me up I want to be able to choose my specs. I would like a setup for a street/strip car anybody have these just sitting around on top of thier pc somewhere?

    Thanks
    Brian

    Daily driver my standard
    Caster +1.5
    Camber 0/.5
    Total toe .6
    Cross caster should be.5 more negitive(forward) than left to compensate for road crown to the right.
    When you go racing the front end will lift and cause negitive caster,you'll have to adjust more positive for this.
    I would do a 4-wheel alignment to see if the rear axle is inline also.


    A good page for understanding alignments.

      Perfect timing! I'm redoing my front end too. Does these spec applies to all our early fords?
      70 Fastback, 408W, Pro Topline heads, 750 Demon, RPM intake, 13/4 hedders into 2 1/2 pipes, C4 tranny with 3200 Stall Convertor, 3.89 DL, best 1/4 time to date is 11.70 at 114MPH.

            Thanks Ole Tech for info and Trash for posting topic.

            I have'nt had the 70 aligned since replacing ball joint and lower arm in 1992 when gas was a few pennies cheaper.
