Proper Alignment Setup

Hey,

On Monday, I am having my Power Steering Rack, Steering Shaft, Outer Tie Rods, Stock springs, Front Struts, and Rear Shocks (replace with the Stock Bullitt springs and Tokico Blues that I bought)..When they go to Align the wheels does a Technician use " Bullitt Specs" or Standard GT setup?...Just for my FYI.

I doubt there are bullitt specs, but not 100%. Request a printout with the final specs as it is always good to know where the #'s are, in case it doesn't handle as desired, or in a minor accident, etc, you know where it is/was. Below is a link to MM CC plate instructions which shows Ford specs, MM recommends (page 5), and will give you some info or learnings. Hope this helps.

Thank you Bossman...I know it is only mild drop, but I was just wanted to know (As a novice w/ Suspension/Steering) what a Tech, should be basing the final outcome.

They would do it to gt specs. Regardless of your suspension the specs in the machine make sure everything is aligned to your car. If something isn't aligned the machine knows even if aligning under the wrong suspension specs. I align heavily modded mustangs every week, as soon as you complete roll back the specs show up in degrees if the technician can't tell something's wrong just by looking at initial specs he should be changing batteries at Walmart.

@ Marcs99GT...Do I need the caster/camber plates for to complete the mild drop alignment? They are just stock springs from 45k mile Bullitt?

It depends your going to get a much better alignment with the c/c plates. Without them you still maybe good I dropped my car 2inches with same settings as stock and still had acceptable degree levels in both caster and camber. I would personally just get them no reason not to, $160 and you know it's done right.

^^ X2. With the CC plates you can also add much needed positive caster which will give camber gain during cornering, without the negative of inner tire wear that comes from increasing static camber.
