Alignment after RM mid drop

I have heard differing information on whether you can get the SRT back to OEM specs after dropping it on Road Magnet Mids. Some people say you need longer control arms to get the rear camber right. I have the stock control arms and dropped my car on mids. I drove around for 3 weeks and then got an alignment. Below are my specs. The alignment was done by my dealer, who said my rear control arms are maxed out. As you can see, my rear camber is still too high. Front caster (no exactly sure what it is) is also a little out of range. I trying to decide if I should go somewhere else to get it aligned or leave it for now and then get longer control arms. Thoughts?

Re: Alignment after RM mid drop

They can do much better than that on the rears man. You should be around 2.3 max without rear control arms.

Depending on how long before you can get the rear control arms i would probably wait to get it all done in one shot.

Re: Alignment after RM mid drop

From that pic, it looks as though you are lower than what the mids would do, or is the drop more significant than that on the 14-15s?

Re: Alignment after RM mid drop

I would say that the Mids drop the car more than the 1" and 1.8" that is advertised. I love the look though. I have some more work planned in the near future that I cant do myself and Ill have the alignment redone. Thanks for the feedback.

Re: Alignment after RM mid drop

How is the ride quality? I've read here, from others that have installed the mids,
that the ride quality is damn near OEM.

Can you share your assessment running the RM Mids?

Thanks

Re: Alignment after RM mid drop

RM mids run smoothly, I think they are soft maybe bouncy sometimes. This is in comparison to the eibachs which ride stiffer. I think the handling on them are similar because one drops you lower and one runs stiffer spring rates.

RM ride quality is not a problem!

Re: Alignment after RM mid drop

My RMs have never been bouncy. The eibachs were horrible though with a capital H.

2 finger gap in the front, 3 finger gap in the rear when running the mids.
