Anybody know what is a good starting point for alignment on a street/track E36 M3? What is adjustable front and rear


The '95 front strut plate and control arm is different from the '96-'97
'96-'99 M3's have more positive camber than '95 M3's
'96-'99 M3's shock and spring rates are increased over '95's.
To reduce understeer, without excessive tire wear on '96-'99 M3's...

1.Fill the gas tank all the way.
2.Be seated during the alignment.
3.Front Toe: 1/16" - 1/8" toe-out total
4.Rear Camber: 0.6-0.8 degree negative each side
5.Rear Toe: 0-1/16" toe-in total
6.40-44 psi front tires.
7.36-40 psi rear tires.
