CORRECTING ALIGNMENT

2002 Lexus SC 430

Suspension problem
2002 Lexus SC 430 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 73000 miles

to give this car " sport" handling the factory has set the camber spec's so far off the car eats tires-10k miles on a set is not unusual using fact. Settings. My ques. How do I arrive at a reasonable setting to ofset the miserable tire wear? My thoughts are to keep the fact. Toe and caster F& R then bring the camber to about.5 for the rear and.3 to.5 for the front. The front is a guess for drift/road crown.I'm 86 so i'm way behind on these new car setups but I do know this baby need a different set of numbers. Thanks for any help.

The cross caster will be the #s that keep it straight for the road crown. But yes, you can find an alignment guy that will work with you on the camber. Those numbers sounds reasonable, but he handling will suffer.
