Default AP2 alignment specs?

Does anyone have the Honda recommended alignment specs for the AP2? (search is down so I couldn't use that function)

pretty sure the only difference is that US spec is 0F -1R for camber, all else should be the same.

regardless, the alignment shop will have the us specs. i persoanlly run us spec even though i run huge tires and lowered. i hate the uk spec. extra camber recked tires unevenly.

AP2 spec has only .25 total toe, not .40-.5 like AP1/UK spec.

I run UK spec camber but US AP2 spec toe.

How long would you all wait to get an alignment done after installing lowering springs?

Are you sure you didn't have some other problem with your alignment somewhere? An extra degree of camber should have a negligible effect on your tire wear, unless there's an underlying problem.

^^^
2* camber is no big deal. Excessive toe causes a lot more wear than modest camber, mine's maxed out at 2.2* in back and the rears wear evenly across the tread.
