oh and i forgot to mention that the 07 STi has camber bolts on the top bolts where the strut connects to the rotor...so i did my best to adjust it to give me some bit of a camber on the front wheels...

You gotta get that car aligned Tommy. Your tires are not going to last very long without a decent alignment; it may not feel that way now but give it a few miles and you'll put an almost irreversible wear pattern in them or scrub them to death, seriously. A reputable alignment shop can do this for you, I'm sure between all the members we can assist with some recommendations on settings if you want a more agressive alignment for autocross or tire longevity/comfort etc.

Correct, have them aligned, the car is to low at the rear, i suggest you get a camber washer or camber bolt for the rear since you cant adjust the rear.

You can also do the alignment on your own by using a string, that's how we do it in the shop or at the track, nothing beats the string. Very Happy

yupyup had a chance to clean it inside out! heehehee... the ride is good! i can actually feel the difference getting in and out of the car since its closer to the ground... but i think its a little softer, thinking it needs to be broken in a bit for it to adjust properly...if that makes any sense
