Checking in for fun. Moaar wheel research while I watch the CUSE game.

Removed my spacers.

Got rid of the OEM tires after 25000 miles and put on Michelin Primacy MXM4's.

Why?

Took it to the local alignment ninja again. Holy rear camber! I may have to get one of those whiteline kits for the rear.

How much camber, and refresh on springs, coilovers...

SurlyOldManMN 01-26-2013 01:16 PM

-2.4L, -2.2R

Swift springs. Tired ass OEM everything else.

Do it! The hardest thing about the rears on these newer Legacys is keeping the toe set properly - I keep mine at 0* F/R, but before the WL rear adjustable links, that was only good until I drove it off the alignment rack... then it was somewhat dynamic. With the WL bits, it locks and stays and adds camber adjustment too.

Good to hear! Toe wasn't bad. .04L .02R. I've been a little uncomfortable with the rear camber since the springs went on. If I can visually see the camber it's too much for my DD needs.

On the plus side, I was getting a bunch of unpredictable bump steer and was worried I'd have to do a full on roll center kit. Alignment fixed it up nicely. RCK probably wouldn't be a bad idea just the same, but the car no longer surprises me under heavy braking or bumps.

I gained enough static camber when I lowered my 4th Gen (on Bilsteins/Swifts) that it had between -2.5 to -3.0 camber. Using the stock front camber bolts, I could regain about 1.0 which still left me with -1.5 to -2.0 and a lot of bumpsteer. Once I added the WL BS/RCK, I regained control over my static camber, and the bumpsteer.

If you're lowered, I recommend the WL bits (front and rear) to trim it all out. That and the offset LCA bushings.

...shopping for wheels and other parts for the spring. With the snow around and me still being on the factory summers my LGT generally stays parked right now.
