Cajun...it  was just lucky good timing
...someone lost interest on a build and let it go really cheap over at Z31Performance....i didnt really need it because i had replaced the bushings with aftermarket rubber...but on disassembly to install the sway poly all that rubber was torn in less than a year...Dorman makes crappy stuff.

I'm coming to your house for my next alignment!
Red...long road trip, do it yourself...i've done it to both of my cars now, the other is a 91 Camry turbo and both are aligned better than what i have paid someone....handle great and track straight.
...my plan is to slightly raise the rear springs with some rubber booster inserts to help reduce the rear camber closer to zero and hopefully being able to bring the rear toe closer to zero....right now the rear toe is fully maxed out, its in spec by the manual but at the outer range.

alignment update....i went through the sequence again to fine tune the measurements....this time i leveled the floor spots perfect, i used thick 1.5x12x12 garden pavers and wood shims...i also tried shimming the rear springs to reduce camber[top of fender arch to ground is 28"....much better results.
front driver camber 0*     toe in -.61mm
front pass camber  0*      toe in -.18mm
rear driver camber 0*      toe in -.23mm
rear pass camber .65*     toe in -.18mm

pix of tiles... saw these at Lowes and figured they are less likely to crack while shimming...very cheap as well. i still use the vinyl tiles on top to allow it to slide/settle the suspension.

Gotta hand it to you...precision is your game! I love the creative solutions you have to get the adjustments in there.

One of the best threads on this forum revived with new content.  Today is a good day for us all.
I was afraid all the five gallon buckets of pain stacked four high were going to fall over

...finished up the reinstall....i have found that it's easier to install the  axles into the differential first and than position/bolting the differential into the rear crossmember, much less  wrestling trying to get the axles liNed up....took it out for a drive aND it sounds /feels the same, no funny noises!...it's raining  today in Ny so no proof of 11,s yet.  LOL
