I'm intrigued by your cosmetic overhaul.

I pulled a lot of the cosmetic stuff from the totaled LR G. I have my Kuruma Z front bumper and Gialla Grille to replace the FG Kenstyle that is ugly IMHO and got destroyed from daily driving (and my wife driving 1x-curse you AT). My Greddy Skideskirts, Stillen Roof Wing and I hope to trade my great fit/paint KenStyle rear bumper for an OEM and install my Kuruma Z Rear Diffuser. Finally, I will refinish my 20" GT-7s like I did the 19s. Other than Coilovers and a Osiris Tune, the car will be done inside and out. I took my car to Stillen and was baffled that with a Eibach ProKit (1.1" drop) and Tockico 16-way shocks/struts (both w/about 50k) and all the Stillen camber adjusters, that they could only get the rear to -1.90 camber. In spec, but certainly not good for tires.

Did you ever go the square tires set up ? I can't recall and was wondering how you liked it if so.

Wow on a 1" drop with adjustable camber and still that far out!?!? How wide are your tires? Any fender roll?

I'm at stock height and looking to drop 1" but also stay closer to being 0'd out with the exception of occasional track days. How far out is your toe after the drop?

Current alignment @ stock height w/SPC f/r camber kit:

Front -->
___________
Toe: R - 0.01
Toe: L - 0.00

Camber: R -0.2
Camber: L -0.0

<-- Rear
___________
Toe: R - 0.03
Toe: L - 0.02

Camber: R - -1.0
Camber: L - -0.8

Default What have you done to your Infiniti lately

Here are the alignment results:

ImageUploadedByAutoGuide1407520062.589328.jpg

Wheel/Specs:
20x9.5 245/35/20
20x10.5 255/35/20
Offsets are around +7
Fenders are rolled

The issue is not rubbing. Tires are pretty stretched. I'll be switching back to my 19s soon to have the 20s refinished, so I'll be able to see how this car sits compared to my old G with the same springs. That car had 135k on the OEM shocks/struts and I didn't notice a sag but we'll see.

I also think Stillen got it within specs and got lazy. They originally charged me $125 for an alignment. After 4 hours, I got the car back and was told the alignment was not much better. Told I need to and camber bolts for additional adjustment ($300 more parts labor).

I'll add more later...

Reminds me of my Vegas trip w/the wife in the "real car" in the Burger King drive through (opening the door b/c i couldn't roll the window down to pay), EPIC fail. Wish I would have thought of reverse. That would have been at least kinda cool (probably not-but different)LOL.

Got brand new Bosch Icon Wipers, Lexol the seats, Oil change with complimentary Car Wash and vacuum. Threw some tire dressing and cleaned the wheels up. Still makes me smile every time I row through the gears.

I got the G all spruced up but big rains came and we decided to take another couple with us to the wedding so we took the crossover sport.

I like the better tires it has (4 new ones) in the heavy rain.... the coupe front tires are all but done, just biding time for now and will get them on before snowfall. Probably 3/32 at best on the front with lots of road noise and feel. Can't wait to have all four as conti a/s.

I took my sedan to Carmax for an appraisal. Not enough money offered to sell her.

So they give you a quote that is close to market value ie; private sale or could you do better on your own ... ?

Did you do the Edmunds or KBB thing to see how that compares to the CM quote ?

Just curious to how far you think they were off if any ?
