Right now my front wheels are Toe-in: +0.25 on both sides, Camber: 0

Rear Wheels: Toe: 0, Camber: -1.38 on both sides.

I feel that there is way too much negative Camber on my rear wheels. Does anyone have the specs? Do not want to pay dealer $160 for four wheel alignment and other folks do not have specs for '01 IS300 yet.

Side note, did not know our cars had it until vehicle was on a lift, however we have adjustments for Camber!!!

No Camber kits necessary! Thanks Everyone.

Remember these are specs for a bone-stock IS300. So if you have made any mods to your vehicles' suspension or wheels, your settings will vary from the norm.

-1.36 camber is actually really not much at all, and toe is what you really got to worry about thats what eats the tires the fastest. (i worry about your +.25 toe in on both sides thats a half inch of total toe on the front end)

Oh and good god 160 for an alignment thats insane! I used to work for Sears auto center before i got a good job (but anyways) they only charge 64.99 or 89.99 (depending on the car) and use the latest top of the line Hunter Alignment Equipment (the store i worked at had a DSP5000).

Also an Alignment on our cars should only take about an hour to an hour and a half because it's only three adjustments, rear camber, front camber, and front toe.

Alignment specs are as follows (per my 2002 factory service manual):

Front:

Camber -0.5 deg. +- 0.5 deg.
Toe (total) +0.1 deg +- 0.2 deg. -- the plus sign indicates toe-in
Caster 6.12 deg. +- 0.5 deg. NOTE: not separately adjustable from camber

Rear:

Camber -0.92 deg. +- 0.5 deg.
Toe (total) +0.2 deg. +- 0.2 deg.
