Default Anyone Running -2 degrees camber on the front wheels ?

I need to get an alignment soon. I've been running -1.5 degrees camber front and -2 rears. I'm thinking of going up to -2 fronts (zero toe) and keeping the rears at -2 (3/16" total toe). Anyone running -2 up front, if so how has it worked for you handling wise and tire wear wise ?. I haven't had any unusual wear in the rears so I figure it might work okay up front.

I'm running a square 255 setup on potenza Re-71R's and running -2 in the rear and -2.2 in the front. turn-in is very crisp, and the overall grip level is ridiculous. The guy I bought the car from had the front set to almost 0 camber in the front so I can't compare before/after if -0.5 camber would make a huge dramatic difference.

That sounds good, thanks for the reply. I am breaking wheel well liner clips on the front so I though a bit more camber might help, if it doesn't adversely affect tire wear.

It's all dependant on the ride height, mine maxed out at -2.3 on factory ball joints and lowering springs
