Factory alignment/weight change
I always wondered if alignment changes were to be made after removing weight off front end. For example my '72 Nova has an alum. pump, heads, intake, battery in trunk, etc. Typical hot rod stuff. That would scooch the tires in for more negative camber. Right? So do I re-align for factory or will the front end want a different solution? Factory camber for me is .25N to .75P. However I was wearing out new tires fast with .25N. I adjusted to 2p & no more wear. Weird I know.

Changing weight in front end does affect alignment angles. toe will wear tires fast the camber
