    Does anyone have some awesome alignment specs for these cars to help the steering issues? Even if the tires wear a bit more it would be nice for the car to track as good as other cars I have owned...even after changing the setting for the better.

    Hey man, thanks for the offer! However, I am in Phoenix, AZ . Can you tell me what kind of OBD hardware/software, etc that is needed to accomplish this?

    Thanks,
    Shep

    BTW - Found this online for the 2015 Optima - "Drive Mode Select (DMS), which offers owners a customizable driving experience by adjusting transmission shift points and steering weight, remains exclusive to the SX Turbo and SX Limited."

    Unfortunately my EX does not have it as "User selectable". It can however be done at a dealer.

    HAVE THEM LOOK FOR THESE KEY WORDS:

    SYSTEM > STEERING/POWER STEERING
    EPS TYPE RECOGNITION
    [EPS VARIANT CODING]
    Your pics are no longer available. Do you have them somewhere else?

    Well this is kind of amazing. I got a performance alignment after replacing almost entire suspension. Anyone think there will be an issue changing steering mode with the alignment I received?
