How to change camber


No, you don't need 15 degrees of negative camber. Most typical specs for camber on the front of a car are between 0.0' and ~ -2.5'.
Note: Cars with -2.0+ degrees of negative camber are usually performance cars like Porsches, Ferrari's, Mercedes AMG models, and so forth.

Front Wheel Allignment


On these LH body cars, camber is not adjustable. Neither is caster. Those angles are preset by the suspension geometry. However, specifications for them ARE published. Generally, if either of those two parameters are out of spec, then it's likely something is worn or damaged and needs to be replaced.

The only adjustable parameters are to the front and rear toe but specified as "Total Toe" - see note below.
The alignment specs are as follows ...

ALIGNMENT SPECIFICATIONS AT VEHICLE CURB HEIGHT
A. FRONT WHEELS
  1. CAMBER
    Acceptable -0.6° to +0.6°
    Preferred +0.0°
    Side to Side Differential
    Acceptable 0.7° or less
    Preferred 0.0°
  2. TOTAL TOE - Specified in degrees. See Note Below
    Acceptable 0.4° in -to- 0.0° out
    Preferred 0.2° in
  3. CASTER* (reference angle)
    Acceptable +2.0° -to- +4.0°
    Preferred +3.0°
    *Side to Side Caster Difference not to exceed
    Acceptable 1.0° or less
    Preferred 0.0°
B. REAR WHEELS
  1. CAMBER
    Acceptable -0.6° -to- +0.4°
    Preferred +0.1°
  2. TOTAL TOE** - Specified in degrees. See Note Below.
    Acceptable 0.2° out -to- 0.4° in
    Preferred -0.1° in
    **TOE OUT when backed onto alignment rack is TOE IN when driving.
  3. THRUST ANGLE
    Acceptable -0.15° -to- +0.15°
Note: "Total Toe" is the arithmetic sum of the left and right Toe settings. Positive is Toe-in. Negative is Toe-out. Total Toe must be equally split between left and right wheels. Left and Right Toe must be equal to within 0.02° (2 one hundredths of a degree).

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.

Camber on left rear is out. can this be adjusted,or does it require replacement of the comtrol arm?


Rear camber is adjustable, most front end alignment shops have the required tools to bring it back to specs, HOWEVER, if you can noticeably see that the camber is out of whack, you probably lost a bushing, in which case, you would need the new arm, and a matching one for the other side, so they perform symmetrically.

How to adjust camber on 2001 monte carlo


There is no camber adjustment from the factory,however moog sells a camber bolt kit that will allow for adjustment. About 20 bucks . If you are talking about the rear of the car,ride height makes a drastic change in camber. If the springs start to get weak the camber will go negative,spring spacers will correct this.

My C70 has way more wear on the inside of the rear wheels. So I took it for new tires and a 4 wheel alliegnment. The tire shop says that this wear is due to excess negative camber and at 2 1/2 degrees on...


2.5 degrees negative camber is not within spec. You need new control arms in the rear. These will set your camber back to the factory setting and reduce your tire wear on the inner edge. The first shop you went to is correct, the camber cannot be adjusted, components must be replaced to rectify the excessive camber. Ive done a couple of New Style C70 rear control arms for this very reason, if your vehicle is under warranty however, the dealer needs to be able to prove that the car needs it. So if you dont have wear on your tires and when the toe was set it readjusted the camber (when you adjust toe it affects camber and caster measurements) then they cant prove to Volvo that it needs the control arms. I hope this helps

Camber out of adjustment


the way to correct this is have a front end alignment performed. some of these models had camber adjustment built in with slotted holes in the steering knuckle where the strut bolts on. if yours does not, you can grind some material off the top bolt, allowing you to pivot the knuckle and tightening it up on spec. be careful not to damage the threads if you need to do this. camber spec on this car is around +.50 degrees. good luck!

Aggravated front tire wear (outer edges)


Your situation is not not abnormal. Since you can't rotate due to different sizes front & rear & they are high performance "Y" speed rated tires 30K is really pretty good
