Morning Jeeple (crazy Toyota matrix guy did something good, eh?),

About to install Icon st 8 2.5inch lift, which includes upper and lower control arms front and rear, and front and rear track bars. Anyone have experience with anything but the factory specs on alignment?

I've pondered a little extra camber (5.0° or 5.1°) from the factory 4.8° to aid straight line stability, but I've little experience.

And for the record, I currently have zero problems with my steering beyond an expected Jeep 1 inch steering play that I have thought was better than expected. No death wobble, minor electrical glitch on a cold morning when cornering and hitting a bump. Not looking to completely rework my steering unless the lift gives me a DW or major drifting.

Morning!

Start with Icon's recommended lengths on the arms, but shoot for caster somewhere in the 5 - 5.5 range and you should be happy with how it drives. Camber isn't adjustable on these, but I knew what you meant. :)

Post up some pics after you get it installed!
