    Front toe-in: 0±3 mm (0±0.12 in.) ′

    Rear camber angle: −1 ° 00 ′±45
    Rear toe-in: 2±1 mm (0.08±0.04 in.)

    Turning angle:
    Inward: 38 ° 30 ′±2 °
    Outward: 33 ° 00 ′ (reference)

    Hi @DieselPower Can you notice in any difference driving the car now?
    Are those the setting they set it too or did you go back to standard?

    That's what they set it to. Only driven 0.5 miles since my new front tyres and tracking change but I'm about to do 650 over the next 5 days so will report back.

    Not compared the values to ichibans..I take it some settings are different?

    Only the rear camber showing in red, but it's only 1 deg out which I'm not sure if that makes a difference. may be for improved handling reasons?
    Be interesting to see what you think. do you know if it was out by much before?

    You guys can get rear camber arms for your FR-V you could dial out that rear camber and get a very neutral car.

    Hopefully it will make the difference in tyre wear.

    just had mine done after putting the lowering springs on..
    backs are sorted with help of the adjustable camber arms from h tune.. I do still need to get some front camber bolts to tidy up the front.

    Hey @chris2982 does lowering the car affect the drive? Adjustable camber arms maybe later on in the year, if I can find a decent set of alloys. Where would you find front camber bolts from? Hope the sound system is pumping....
    Kind regards Ali

    the drive has definitely changed,,, you can certainly feel the bumps in the road..
    the bolts are easy enough to come by,, eibach and powerflex do them,, can get them on ebay for 20 quid.

    as for the sounds ,,,, very quiet at the moment as I hace stripped it again ,,, just need to decide what I want in it now, and of course finding the time to do it haha

    Looking at it I think it means your front left is slightly out. Look how the tyres are on the page. The front left is turned to the left a little
