Dinan Suspension Alignment Specs?

I would love to get my hands on the alignment instructions Dinan sends out with their stage 2 kit if anyone has theirs! If you could scan it and email (ekoz23@aol.com) it to me or fax (PM for number) it I would really appreciate it! Though I am not doing the full stage 2 from Dinan, I am sure their specs with my RDSport Springs and Dinan Sways will be better than a factory alignment!!
My parts are here and just waiting on the Brembos for install! Can't wait!!







Thanks in advance for your help!
Evan

Just curious... why did you go with RD springs instead of Dinan?

I like the low look and the Dinan springs sit too high for my tastes... I am hoping to accomplish the look of RDSport with a good chunk of the Dinan handling characteristics.

I'm curious about how the front roll control system works. Anyone have any information minus the marketing jargon?

This "system" consists of parts that work in conjunction with the stock front anti-roll bar. Dinan tells me that they tried to develop a replacement bar, but the stock one was so good that they could not improve on it. So, instead, Dinan designed some ancilliary parts that increase the stiffness of the front end (I recall a figure of 90 lbs mentioned, although I can't tell you what it measures) and virtually eliminate understeer. From what I have seen so far, it works wonderfully well.

I don't know how much exactly they lower the car, but they are the LOWEST M5 springs available (lower than H&R and Eibach and for sure a good bit lower than Dinan). There are pics of them on here, look around.
