Hi All,

I just installed the ROW M030 suspension on my 2001 C2 Cab. I remember seeing alignment specs before but can't seem to find them anymore. I want to be able to give the shop the proper specs rather than relying on them to have it.

Thanks

FYI:

I have the ROW M030 suspension on my 02 996 Cab, and had the car aligned to the European Specs. (all dealers have those specs). My observation is that the main difference between the US and ROW specs are that the ROW specs have much more negative camber dialed into the rear wheels (-11 degrees).

While that makes for some very, very good handling characteristics, rear tire life is severely shortened. I went from getting about 22K on a set of rear tires to just 15K, with a wear pattern that essentially ate the inner part of the tire down to the cords, while leaving the outside almost untouched.

I just got done replacing the rears, and had the alignment redone to US ROW specs, which have neutral or very moderate (-1 degree) camber. Handling is almost as good, (a little lighter on turn in) but I would rather extend tire life back to what it was before.

So that is your trade-off, awesome handling and lousy tire life, or extremely good handling and very good tire life. You pick!
