  • Front caster 11.0°R/8.4°L after dealer's track alignment?

    Hey Guys. I just had my dealer put the track alignment on my Z51 car and the final caster measurements concern me (11.0° right and 8.4° left, whereas 8.0 is recommended). I wanted to get others opinions before bringing it up to the dealer. Also, there is a very minor pull to the right when I take my hands off the wheel.

    Would the 2.6゚ difference of caster be the biggest issue? Is 11゚ just way too high? Is 8.4゚ even too high? I understand how positive caster increases camber as the wheels turn, but don't understand exactly to what degree and if that will adversely affect performance for what I do.

    I use the car for autocross maybe 12 times a year on Hoosier A7 tires and plan to keep it track aligned for daily driving.

    I'm attaching a picture of the printout. The initial measurements were after I did my own alignment in my garage with basic tools after a service garage canceled my alignment appointment the day before a race 🤨

    Thank you for any input.

    I never had a dealer do my track alignments. I went to other sources so I could get the proper specs and watch them do it. Plus, that way they wouldn't know I tracked the car if a part popped. Like on my C6 Z, blown motor. Replaced due to the dry sump tank retaining the oil in high G turns. Leading to have GM changing the bottom oil pan on the next model year.
