    I plan on it! :-)
    In Iowa but I'm not sure anyone around here is nice enough to do it for free.
    I would probably do it myself if it we're summer with my setup for my Miata. :-)
    Just had another few inches of snow and a -30F wind chill and no garage! Lol

    I'll be sure to update numbers when I get them. So far the 45 minute drive home last night with massive gusts of wind was pretty great. I am reminded of my Cadillac DeVille from the steering assist.

    I got this yesterday for my 2018 ES. Apparently it is very within specs. Aside from it not being out of whack, is this at all surprising or worrisome to anyone?

    Not worrying at all. Sounds like great news.

    I would say that it's moderately unusual that your front end was aligned within specs. It's unusual that someone posts a 4-wheel alignment where the front and rear are both within spec. So congrats on getting a good one from the factory!

    I had to rotate your image so I didn't go cross-eyed...

    Nice. Even nicer that it is from an independent shop and not the dealer.

    Thought I'd post my near new 2019 ES results. My front and rear were both off. They fixed the front, but obviously the rear is not adjustable. Working with mitsubishi now to move forward on a fix. Based on the experience on the forum, is my rear far enough out of spec where they will cover it?

    Thanks again for this thread, I would have had no idea to check on a new vehicle.

    Well, it shouldn't be a question really. Its not within specifications, period. So, something should be done.

    Give yourself credit for taking your new car in for an alignment check. Many people would consider that a waste of time. Obviously it's paying off for you. It's somewhat discouraging that 2019 models are still showing up with alignment problems.

    You're in a bit of a tough spot. Your right rear is slightly toed out (unusual because most of the time the rear wheels are toed in when they are out of spec). Anyway...it's possible they could put a new rear axle in and it might not fix your problem...or it could make it worse. I think I'd take that gamble and see what happens. Let us know what the dealer says.

    I installed Eibach lowering springs and got an alignment check

    They did what they could without using shims or camber bolts

    I'm sorry about the quality. If I knew they were going to take a "screen shot" with a camera, I would have asked for a paper copy...I may go back for one.

    I'm not very concerned about the camber because rotating and I don't intend to use wider tires (tell me if I should be concerned). I am more concerned about the rear toe...partly because I have less of an understanding of toe than I do camber and because if you scroll up a few posts, you can see that it wasn't a problem before lowering. https://mirageforum.com/forum/showth...ll=1#post85598 The shop wanted a bunch of money (my opinion) to use shims and camber bolts. They said it could be done (I've heard the rear is not adjustable???), how hard is it?

    Recommendations for specific shims and bolts?
