So the hurp derp shop said my car was too low to align (12"?!?!) But they were at least kind enough to print off what they left me with and a crooked wheel
. I have another shop that I'm going to tomorrow but I want to know off any of this looks bad, They said its maxed out, I took a peak under and only a few are. The numbers I wanted were less than it is so does it matter if its maxed? I wanted -1.2* front and -1.75* rear with 5* caster all around. Found it off of miata.net garage.

They said the toe in was bad but when I got under it the tie bar is out of threads on the passenger side but still has a lot on the drivers side.

Call around to dealers/shops and ask if they use a WinToe system. Go to them. Its a great software system and USUALLY the racks used with the WinToe only need a plank of wood to get up. All the GM dealers arounf NJ have them. Expect people to not know what the hell you're on about though, lol.

Or go to someone that knows how to deal with a lowered car and can use a normal rack.

...Or do it with string in your garage. (fun but time-consuming)

thanks, i had a miata buddy point me to a guy thats really good in town, didnt ask which system but its supposed to be better than all the others. they wanted $110 for a "custom" alignment whereas a normal 4 wheel is $69.

Do them a favor and take your lip off before going.. It makes them smile. You really dont need anything as fancy as a "custom" alignment. You just need a guy to know what they are doing... Which it seems like you found. I wish you good luck!

Already been there, that's where I got those specs. Really I was wanting to see if anything looked terribly off..I read somewhere that if the sai is too far apart I need new eccentrics. I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction.

This might be the best option for those of us with lowered cars. I remember in the old car manuals they included instructions on how to do it.
