Default Alignment specs

I lowered my C7 Z51 last week and yesterday I noticed the steering wheel is off centered. I am assuming the alignment is off. Can anyone make any suggestions on some alignment specs? My car is primarily a street car and if anything I might race take it to a road course just to see what it does.

I aligned to DSC's track specs when I got new tires and have been really happy with it. I'm sure their street alignment would be good for your purpose. Just make sure wherever you take it can adjust the rear caster (takes a special tool I think). Also, it will cost a bit more if you do the track alignment due to the added labor to loosen the control arms and pull the 16 washers.

The alignment shop recommended these. They do all of the Corvettes for a local club. I got 30k miles out of tires on my previous C7 after they aligned it.
