I was told there is no adjustment for caster but they can correct front camber with camber bolts and it is 50/50 that may help caster . they want 350.00 to do the camber bolt but I'm risking the 50/50 what...


Camber adjust bolts mounted from steering knuckle to strut will NOT change caster. 0.3' degree difference in caster is acceptable, up to 0.5'degrees higher on right is preferable for road crown correction. 0.5'degrees higher on left may show a noticeable drift to right while driving.

How to replace the factory casper/camber equipment on a 1992 gmc 1/2 ton truck? I am told there are knock out that need to be taken out?


1. Original control arm does not allow adjustment of caster and camber. caster and camber may be adjusted only by using adjustment kit ( gm # 15538596 ) Raise vehicle, and support under lower control arms.
remove and discard upper control arm to frame bracket bolts, nuts and washer.

2. remove large washers welded to upper control arm frame brackets. remove wield beads from upper control arm brackets. grind area smooth. install adjustment cans to bracket.

3. install bolt,adjust caster and camber to specifications by rotating bolt head.

I want to know how to fix the alignment on my 1995 honda accord ex.


Before making wheel alignment adjustment, perform the following checks:
  1. Tires should be equal in size and runout must not be excessive. Tires and wheels should be in balance, and inflated to manufacturer's specifications.

  2. Wheel bearings must be properly adjusted. Steering linkage and suspension must not have excessive looseness. Check for wear in tie rod ends and ball joints.
  3. Steering gear box must not have excessive play. Check and adjust to manufacturer's specifications.
  4. Vehicle must be at curb height with full fuel load and spare tire in vehicle. No extra load should be on vehicle.
  5. Vehicle must be level with floor and with suspension settled. Jounce front and rear of vehicle several times and allow it to settle to normal curb height.
  6. If steering wheel is not centered with front wheels in straight-ahead position, correct by shortening one tie rod adjusting sleeve and lengthening opposite sleeve equal amounts.
  7. Ensure wheel lug nuts are tightened to torque specifications
Ride Height Adjustment

Before adjusting alignment, check riding height. Riding height must be checked with vehicle on level floor and tires properly inflated. Passenger and luggage compartments must be unloaded. Bounce vehicle several times, and allow suspension to settle. Visually inspect vehicle from front to rear and from side to side for signs of abnormal height.
Measure riding height. See figure. Riding height between left and right sides of vehicle should vary less than 1′ (25.4 mm). If riding height is not within specification, check suspension components and repair or replace them as necessary.
Wheel Alignment Procedures

Honda recommends using commercially available computerized 4-wheel alignment equipment. Follow equipment manufacturer instructions to obtain vehicle alignment settings. Use following procedures for necessary adjustments.
Civic Camber Adjustment
Compare camber settings with vehicle manufacturer recommendations. If camber is incorrect, check for bent or damaged front suspension components. Replace faulty components. Recheck camber.
Civic Caster Adjustment
DO NOT use more than 2 shims. If more than 2 shims are required to adjust caster angle, check for bent or damaged suspension components.
Compare caster settings with vehicle manufacturer recommendations. If caster is incorrect, check for bent or damaged front suspension components. Replace faulty components. Recheck caster.
Civic Toe-In Adjustment

  1. Secure steering wheel in straight-ahead position. Measure front wheel toe-in. If adjustment is needed, loosen tie rod lock nuts. Turn both tie rods equally in the same direction until front wheels are in straight-ahead position and toe-in reading is correct. Tighten tie rod lock nuts. Reposition tie rod boots if twisted.
  2. Ensure parking brake is released. Check rear wheel toe-in. If adjustment is needed, hold adjusting bolt on rear compensator arm and loosen lock nut. See figure. Adjust rear toe-in by sliding rear control arm until rear toe-in is correct. Install NEW lock nut, and tighten it while holding adjusting bolt.

My 1998 jimmy steering jerks out of my hands whats the matter.


You have some serious and dangerous problems with your front suspension. This is called bump steer, and is usually caused by the front end alignment being out of adjustment, mainly the caster adjustment. But for it to be bad enough to **** the steering wheel out of your hands, there has to be something coming loose, such as a ball joint, or tie rod end, or the idler arm may be loose. I would suggest taking the vehicle to a front end shop immediately, and have it inspected.

Caster adjustment for 1990 jeep yj wrangler


caster is adjusted at the rear of the lower control arms. Camber is fixed and cannot be adjusted by normal means (though special off-set ball joints are available to do that) Toe in is adjusted by turning the sleeves in or out on the tie rod ends. None of this should be done at home though crude adjustments can be made in order to get the front end reasonably straight. Adjustments are made on an alignment machine that allows precise adjustments to all you mentioned as well as front/rear tracking.

Setting wheel alignment manually


Set toe-in with a tape measure and helper, adjust camber with a level, adjust caster withan angle finder. That should get you to an alignment shop where they can set it to spec.

1996 chevy 1/2 ton pick up steering feels very heavy


This usually happens when pump has internal wear, lowering pressure output. Not always noisy either. If caster is set too far positive that can make heavy wheel as well. If pump dosent make enough difference, take one alignment shim out of the rear of each control arm and install at front pack. This may change toe in a bit so watch tires and adjust accordingly.

92 honda accord camber adjustment


There is no no camber or caster adjustment on that model. If the car has been in an accident, chances are something is bent. My experience has been that the shock body and/or the steering knuckle is bent. Parts replacement is the only true fix. If the vehicle has had the ride height altered, ie. lowering springs, then there are adjustable upper control arms and ball joints available. These do generally only address the camber angle, not caster, which can also greatly affect handling. hope this helps.
