In order to answer your question I will need to know what kind of lift did you use and spec. on the lift kit.

We will need to go back and forth via email.

Body / chassis lift?

Suspension lift?

Spring only?
front and rear

Steering kit?

====
Per Chilton book this is the prefer caster and camber
Year Model Ride Height Min-Max Caster Min-Max Camber Min-Max. 1983 - 1991
Ranger 4wd
4 - 4-1/4 2 - 5 1 - 2 4-1/4 - 4-3/4 1 - 4 2 - 3

I would keep the current setting (I hope you made markings on the tower before pull the suspension out) and start monitor for tire wear.

There is an old trick for tracking 4X4 vehicle.

Wet for front tire and drive straight,check the water mark.

Do the same for the rear.


Fill me in on what know of lift you use and I will email you more information.

    The last owner must know what they are doing.

    Doing chassis,body lift plus steering linkage and bumper lift/filler are not an easy task.

    ===

    My recommendation is to make as many marking on the steering tower/spindle before you send the truck for a 4 wheel alignment .

    Professional use ball pin hammer and lumber crayon to set the fix point on the shock tower/steering spindle.


    The chance are there are marks already mark my the person who did the lift.


    If you can contact the last owner then don't shy and ask them which shop aligned the truck.

    That shop will had the correct data in their machine,

    As fas as I know,lifting the truck will not off set the stock caster and chamber.


    Keep using the same set of front tires and monitor for uneven wear and pull.

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).

Toe adjustment camber caster


camber 0 to 1 degree castor 1 to 2 degrees and toe in 1/ to 1/4 inch as different roads are constructed differently with varying cambers (slope to the side for water run off) the wheel alignment is best set by a qualified wheel aligner shop to suit the local conditions

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.

How can I adjust the rear camber on a 2003 Audi TT?


There is likely an eccentric bolt on the lower contorl arm. The one on the arm closest to the bottom center of the wheel hub is the camber adjustment, the other eccentric is the toe adjustment. You really should have it aligned with a computerized alignment machine. Changing the rear camber changes the rear toe and vise versa. It would be nearly impossible to get both within an acceptable range without the proper equipment. You can crudely measure rear toe using a tape measure but you won't know what the thrust angle is and that could cause some serious alignment issues.

Right negative camber.....is it adjustable? The toe was out of adjustment........when adjusted to specs the camber was still -2.3 degrees


Camber is the lean "off perpendicular" of the wheel. This error could be worn control arm bushings or something bent from a collision or pothole curb hit. Jack up the car from the lower control arm, not the frame. This will keep weight on the front suspension same as if it's on the ground. With the tire about 2 inches off the ground and the car wheels chocked safely, now you can check for wear. Do not get under the car !!!! Use about a 2 foot steel bar or pipe, placed under the wheel. Now lifting up see if there is loosness , clunking of the wheel or movement of the control arm bushings.

Front tires last 1 or 2 weeks before showing steel on inside


No full 4 wheel alighnment. The struts you have replace are how the front camber is adjusted. After camber has been adjusted then toe will be set.

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.
