Wheel Alignment

I recently had my car lowered using Eibach springs and i am now curious to know if once lowered, it's advisable to adjust the toe and caster to spec. With the camber now knocked out, i have had 2 supposed "experts" tell me 2 totally different things. Biggest difference of opinion is on front toe in. There adjustments will differ from -5mm at one shop to +2mm at the other shop.
Any thoughts?

Iíve changed suspension 2 times in a few months, and I noticed something strange when driving, and visually I see some wheels aligned and some not aligned!
Yesterday Iíve received my 147 from Alfa service 20.000 service, and Iíve asked to see wheels camber, recalibrate tires, etc) and I noticed right at the exit de difference!
I really advice everyone who have change suspension to see wheels camber, etcÖ

Hi Paulo

I didn't ask you before but, did you liked the Alfa Service I recommend?

Was it more or less expensive from the one you had before?

Calzone, from my experience,if you drive in bad roads, you might definitely check the wheel alignment regularly!
If you change suspension I think you might check it too.

If you have been to someone who knows what they are doing they will have had a laser level and a pc with Alfas factory settings stored in it.I would advise sticking to those as they didnt spend millions testing the geometry for nothing!
