    confused Optimal toe and camber settings for Irmscher suspension kit

    Hello All!

    I have recently fitted the Irmy suspension kit. The 4-wheel alignment was done with Hunter DSP 400 at the same day.

    I've noticed more pulling than before with the new setup. I have 215/50/17 wheels, 3-4mm pattern left (thinking to upgrade into 225/45/17).

    Does anybody know the optimal values for the toe/camber setup in order to reduce pulling?

    Am I only one with the 4-wheel alignment result sheet? Would be nice to see other's settings and comments about road handling.

    Sorry nothing to do with toe & camber but it's been up a few days now & am I the only one who sees this topic title as "mal toe and camber" ?
    Perhaps if toe had been spelt as tow my mind wouldn't be playing tricks on me

    Thanks Plasma!

    How does your Veccie handle?

    Ben H, I really tried to write "Optimal toe and camber..." as title. I might have missed something, but I'm a Finn, please understand.

    before i had the irmscher suspension on it, it felt like jelly round corners. With the irmscher setup and new tyres up front plus the 4 wheel setup she handles a hell of a lot better..

    Sorry Jay-C, it's nothing you've written wrong. It's just an anagram of those words are just screaming something else at me
