Which should be done first? toe in or camber? Does it matter?
Thanks,

You should set the toe-in first

I dont want to sound like a know it all but you set the toe last. First set the camber close next go to the castor.You will have to move both to get them but it is a very important part of a good driving rod.If you have power steering(manual gets a little hard to steer with to much castor) dont be afraid to put 1-3 degree's of extra castor in from spec ,it really helps to keep the car from darting around at speed. The last thing you set is toe cause the camber and casto will change the toe .If you have a set of gauges dont be afraid to move things around a liitle,i have seen some pretty agressive setting that work real well.The factory would never do this.They just look for the easy way out and it is most times a comprimise.
Good luck
