Slight thread change, but still related.
On my 01 (that I picked up as a track car based on this forums advice) I have 15x8 PF01's with 205/50 RE11's. The cars suspension is otherwise stock and the alignment I am going to request is:
-1.5 front camber
as much front caster without affecting camber
0 front toe
-1.2 rear camber
0 rear toe
The problem now is that I need to replace the eccentric bolts because, once again, my steering wheel is all crooked. I have the bolts ready to go, but now I need some pointers on the process. I've pieced together advice from searches and please correct me if I am wrong.
1. Remove eccentric bolts one at a time, marking their position, while supporting the control arm with a jack in a ?? position.
2. Torque the eccentric bolt to 150+ ft lbs or as tight as possible
3. Go get an alignment ASAP.
So, if I do this install correctly and go get the alignment, should I again put the car in the air and torque them down myself?
