Camber angle

Post by Webbel on Fri Dec 05, 2014 2:34 pm

Well I jacked the car up and levelled it with my spirit level. Camber guage set correctly to zero.
Stick it on the car and both sides are 2º positive.

This dont seem right...sure I was told it should be zero

Roll it back and forward to get the wheels in a straight line.
That shouldnt affect the camber

it settles the suspension, when you jack it up, if you look the wheels go in at the bottom giving a false camber reading which should be checked level and loaded
due to friction between tyre and ground it dose not slide out
