BenzMac, MBDoc, 190E Alignment specs?

I have a 93 190E 2.6, with E500 sway bars front and rear, Eibachs with 8mm perch on front, 18mm in back, MB Sportline Struts and Shocks (same as the Bilstein Sports) and alot of tail movement. It seems every time I hit the throttle, the rear goes in a different direction. Only happend after I added the rear bar and added the 18mm shims int he back, wondering if alignment specs are that off.

I was wondering what alignment specs should Iuse though, as my suspension is not anywhere close to stock, and using the stock ones don't make sense. I've been trying to use 93 190E 2.6 Sportline specs untill now, but have decided to custom tailor them.

Was wondering what the imput would be about Alignment specs?

Thanks.
Charlie.

Well, depends on what you are looking for! For autocross you want as much negative camber & positive caster as the car adjustment will allow, BUT if you don't want excessive tire wear then stay away from less than -1.5deg camber. Also for autocross you want very little toe-in but not so for a street car, at least 2-3mm.
Rear toe-in could cause the rear to wander if there isn't at least 2mm.
