Yes, you need an alignment. My rears had serious toe-in and I ate the outside edges up. The front wasn't too bad. I would just use ford spec, which your alignment shop will have in their computer. If you plan on doing any twisties, set the front up with -1.5 camber and 1/16th toe in on the Front. It'll help a bit with handling and won't eat the tires up. I would leave the rear stock. I've tried changing it a little bit, but stock specs for the rear keep those tires in check.

Hope this helps.

They will have it. That's how they get the specs on each car that is brought in. They used to use books, but most have every make/model on a computer now. Put it this way, the shop I took mine to didn't even do my rear suspension the first time because they thought ALL Mustangs have solid axles.

Seriously though, they will have the factory settings there. You can ask them for a printout, since they are all computerized now. I had mine done in 89 on my old Honda and they had the computer specs then.

Just ask friends and family who does good alignment in your area. Pretty much everyone has had it done at one point.

Good luck!
