Alignment Issues

I have a 99 GT with the following: Motor sport B Springs, MAC CC Plates (I think they are MAC) Cobra R replicas with 245/45 17 Kumhos on them, the problem is the car will not hold an alignment, I have it lined up and everything feels nice and tight for a while and then I have to have it re-aligned. I have to take her in about every 3 or 4 months and I only drive the car about 200 miles a month. Do I need to look at more parts, then what and I will get them, do I need to change parts?

Re: Alignment Issues

sounds like you have peice of **** caster/camber plates OR your tie rods are not holding their adjustment. Are you getting printouts of the alignment specifications after each alignment to see how far things are shifting between alignments?

The BEST cc plates on the market of maximum motorsports 4 bolt design which use two plates. Also the factory alignment specs are not the best for tire wear in all cases.

Re: Alignment Issues

where are you taking it to get your alignments done? Dont take it to any ****ty tire/alignment shop. 90% of those mechanics wont even touch your camber or caster. Alot of the time its set toe and go. Make sure u look at the printouts and make sure their doing it all.

Re: Alignment Issues

Id say its your c/c plates. Mac's arent the greatest plates to run. Id say you have a couple of options: Buy some new c/c plates from max motorsport or go to firestone and pay for lifetime alignments for like 150 bucks.


BTW, where you from? Your username reminds me of somewhere

Re: Alignment Issues

if its being adjusted good and then losing its adjustment its the CC plates or the tie rod ends
