Can you tell me what the Front suspension settings are ?


no vehicle make model. year supplied so the answer is generic but applies to most vehicles toe in is 1/8 -1/4 inch
caster 1 to 1 1/2 degrees and camber 1/2 2 degrees ( all measurements are positive
tire wear is the best guide to wrong alignment
wear on the inside or outside of the tire tread is alignment and toe -in
in the middle or on the outsides of the tread is pressure problems
wheel wobble at speeds ( 30mph up ) is castor adjustment, loose tie rod ends , ball joints and if the castor is approaching negative setting , will, not recenter the wheel after cornering
I suggest that you take the vehicle to an accredited suspension/ wheel alignment shop with experience on your make of vehicle and have it inspected
good shops will recommend that the rear is checked/ adjusted first as much front tire wear can be traced to the back being out

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.

Wheel alignment


If the car is stock then I would run the caster at .05 higher on the right than the left to adjust for the crown of the road. the front alignment looks good other than I am not sure which one is camber and which one is caster. To adjust the rear camber on these cars you have to have a camber kit. From the angle I am seeing you don't have a camber kit. Also the only way to adjust caster on the civic is to shift the sub frame.

You can have a balance and alignement done. Most reasons for camber is just a need of adjustment or new rear struts

Need to replace rear camber bolt on 2000 Hyundai Tiburon.


most front wheel drives do have a rear camber bolts on the inside of the lower control arm. you can change these yourself. just mark the rough position of the old ones knock them out and replace with the new bolts. probably 1/2 hour job. real easy but you will definitely need an alignment after.

Wheel alingment


That is right; the car has no built in adjustment for toe-in of the rear tires when the camber gets really bad. It has an adjustment for camber, and it can be used to adjust toe-in, but when your wheels start leaning badly, you can't do both.
