MX-5 Roadster NC Wheel Alignment

If your MX-5 feels like it's pulling to one side or handling strangely, it could be your wheel alignment needs adjusting. This is also a job to be done if you've recently fitted new suspension or you find your Roadster's tyres have an odd wear pattern, perhaps wearing out on one side more than the other. Here are the factory recommended alignment settings as seen in the Mazdaspeed coilover fitting guide. Take the car to a reputable garage equipped with a four wheel laser alignment machine such as the Hunter, and try these settings as a starting point. You can then adjust them to your own requirements. There are a total of eight adjustable alignment bolts on the Roadster.
