What are OEM inclination angles on Star?

I have a Star lowered e55, the tech used the 'Star Diagnostic How To DIY with lots o pics' sticky thread to lower my e55 and used the inclination angles listed in the thread.

Front 3.5
Rear -1.5

I have now put on front links + programma lowering module and I no longer want to be star lowered. Reason is so I can go back to oem ride height via module.

Does anybody here know the OEM inclination angles to enter to remove the Star lower and go back to factory ride height?

Thanks in advance!

On a level surface you need to do the ride height calibration with star and set all corners where you want them to be at stock height. Then enter the inclination values as long as they are between the upper and lower specs shown and the screen.

-0.9 to -1.5 degrees rear. Negative indicates the inboard end of the axle is lower than the outboard end of the drive axle. Measure by placing the inclinometer directly on the drive axle.

+2.8 to +3.4 degrees front (IIRC). Positive indicates the inboard end of the control arm is higher than the outboard end of the control are. Measure by placing the inclinometer directly on the "nubs" of the control arm.

Inclinometer apps are available for your smartphone. Be sure set for degrees and calibrate before attempting to calibrate your suspension.

Voltages from the sensors must be in the OEM specified range or the calibration will not be accepted by the SAS module.

Hulk,
Romess just ties into a computer to automate it; otherwise it's just an app. The free app on my cell phone I used was accurate when I compared it to my $270 SmartCamber tool. Flyin' Miata uses a cell phone app to set suspension alignment on their race cars; that's where I got the idea. If one can afford a Romess, go for it. Otherwise, the app, even in only accurate to +/- 0.1 degree, is far better than nothing at all.

FWIW. Cheers!
