    Exclamation 08 G8 GT Alignment specs

    If you're getting an alignment I highly recommend you print out this image and bring it with. Some alignment shops (Tire Kingdom for sure) may not have G8s in their system. These are from AllData.

    Thanks for the heads up. I used to work at the Sears Auto in the Pines mall and they always seemed to be a year or two behind in vehicle alignment specs.

    Tell me if I'm reading this correctly.

    For example...

    Front Camber Minimum: -0.67
    Front Camber Nominal: -0.34
    Front Camber Maximum: -0.01

    I am really pissed right now. The dealerships alignment sheet has totally different numbers than these values! The tech said they didn't have the values in their alignment computer, but he "found them".

    Thanks for posting this, I'm taking mine back as it's pulling to the left now. And the steering wheel isn't perfectly centered, and that just bugs the shit out of me.lol

    It can. All of it is adjustable though.

    Mine wasn't centered from the factory. It was cocked to the right. I took it in to have them fix it, then it was cocked to the left. I took it back in and it is cocked to the right. I'm going to pay someone to do it right!
