Im no pro but I was told if you have a good set of springs (like the pinks) you shouldnt have to wait. Here are factory spec's for the STI http://www.oakos.com/wrx/2004stispecs.htm You may want to modify the alignment to adress understeer. I unfortunately havent driven a STI yet so I dont know if that is a problem with that car but Ive read some writeups on the car and they said understeer was a flaw with the car.
If you tried the link and it didnt work, it does now.
how do I align my car so that I "fix" under steer without wearing my tires too much? What should I have my settings at? Thanks...an no I don't have any picture, but the car isn't that much lower with the "pinks" it's even hard for me to tell that the car was lowered....
Different settings work for different people depending on their driving style. The factory settings on a WRX (non STI) are -.5 front and -1.5 in rear so I would think you could go -1.5. To help understeer you need more negative camber in the front. How much I dont know but I would think maybee at least go -1 front and keep the back close to factory setting .5ish. From what Ive read in some of the posts as long as you dont go much over -1.5 and you are at 0 toe you shouldnt have any uneven wear but the STI comes with some very soft tires so if it was me I wouldnt go over -1. Im no pro and I dont have an STI so hopefully someone that has tweaked an STI can give you their first hand experience. If you dont run it hard at auto x or on backroads you may want to stick to factory settings but what fun would that be. One more thing Im prety sure the STI is like the WRX and you cant adjust the camber in the rear without a bolt kit (which you wont need) but you can in front.
I also was wondering about the the settling time.
Its just turn 2 weeks since I had the pink springs and strut tops installed on my STi.
At first it didn't noticed too much of a drop.
But today looking at my car I noticed it doesn't look even. I noticed this by the wheel wells.
the left side looks lower than the right, and the spacing is different at all four wheel wells
