Greetings,

I have a FiberFab Speedster body on a 72 VW Type 1 chassis.  A series of questions.

Perhaps important?  When I bought the car last year, in an attempt to "create the Speedster look" the front end, unbeknownst to me, had been set to rest directly on the chassis.  The shocks did not provide any dampening at all.  I've had the front raised 1.5" and the stops moved to allow at least that dampening.  I'm told that it is unlikely that we'll be able to get any more lift.  Also, the wheels are standard but do have 5 studs.  I understand that this may not allow some garages to work on my car? 

Given these facts, can someone provide me with the tire and alignment settings that I should provide a garage who will adjust my car?  I do not drive aggressively.  My top speed is between 55 and rarely to 65.  Not looking for racing car settings here just what this car needs.  Also, I need to provide this info to a garage (who will take my car on - not found yet - either too old or too low, so if you could explain in common language what I'm supposed to ask the garage to do so I sound like I know what I'm speaking about would really be helpful. 

Thanks in advance.

Marshall
