M3 front suspension parts

Well the wishbones and tension rods are in
cost: $245 to install and align.
Results:
Toe:
before alignment = 2 degrees in
after = 1/16 in

Left camber -1.0 degree
Right Camber - 0.75 degree
Average camber from Larry's tool = - 0.6 degrees

feel:
Crisper? Definitely
cornering? Feels more planted
faster at autocross? Maybe not faster, but thats my own fault. The turning was greatly improved.

overall decision after a couple of twisty's: need more rear grip coming out of turns with foot on the gas. This was verified on the first lap of autocross. 360 baby!

Next: front sway. See below
