I am not sure about Shelby gt350, but the FRS's alignment is out of spec from factory. Their alignment's specs are within a broad range which are considered normal. So anyone here check their alignment after purchasing the car?

Also, after some research, I read that our front camber cannot be adjusted without camber plates. That means without camber plates, there is no way to adjust front camber of both sides equal to each other right? :(

I am waiting for the opertunity to align the vehicle myself. I am sure the ‘range’ is quite broad, allows a tech to easily “get it in spec” (red ligh/ green light alignment). You will get a new set of (racing) specs with your New Owner Kit from Ford. I would align closer to those and I have read they require Camber Plates. I would say Camber Plates are necessary if you have plans of aligning the car straight.

My dad bought a new 2016 GT350 and the insides of both front tires were showing cords after 15,000 miles. The middle had about 5-6/32 left on both sides. He just put new tires on it and has not yet had the alignment checked. The car has never been on a track and not driven very hard around curves. The dealer he purchased it from told him this was normal because of the way Ford aligns it from the factory. We kind of thought this is ridiculous since most of these cars will spend the majority of their lives on the streets and a few miles at the track. I also purchased a new 2016 GT350 last October and had the alignment checked after 2,500 miles. They said it was off a little, but not enough to cause drastic uneven tire wear. I now have ~5,000 miles and will keep my eye on the front tire wear.

Good to know about the camber plates. I hate to modify the car since I am pretty much daily driving it and not going to the track. Since tires are $300-$400 each, I want as much life out of them as possible.

Thanks for all the information.
