You will have to take it to an laignement shop had have the rear axle shimmed to spec, doing it by eye is no good as it will also affect the toe

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.

My 1998 Acura CL 2.3L with double wishbone suspension has the rear, passenger side tire is wearing out on the inside and sometimes it squeals while driving.


Have the rear suspension checked for worn parts. If ok, an alignment check should show either negative toe setting, or a negative camber setting on that wheel. This can sometimes be adjusted out, but often indicates a bent component.

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

Is there ajustment for camber caster on the rear


From the factory,no,however,
There is a bolt kit available,in a few different sizes from 1 degree to 3 degrees I believe.This is for camber only,no caster adjustment is possible.
Also,alot of the alignment problem may be ride height,as the springs get weaker,the rear end sags and the camber goes negative. Often the camber can be corrected with a coil spring spacer .
You can tell if you were to put a jack under the center of the rear,take some weight off and you will see the camber come back.

How do you adjust the rear camber on a Mitsubishi


have you lowered the car? There are bolts that you can get which allow you to adjust your camber. They are called cam bolts, I found some at my local napa store. I would really recommend taking the car to a tire shop or a shop with an alignment rack. If you try to eyeball it, chances are that you will have weird handling, and possibly accelerated tire wear. I fixed my negative camber issues on my 91 eclipse gs-t at my local community college while I was taking the suspension class. I have since steppe up to an evo8. Mitsubishi's are my favorite!

2004 Huyndai Santa Fe - Negative camber on rear passenger side


It is possible for the chassis to sag, but this is far more common with much larger, heavier vehicles. Likely, you have something in the suspension that is bent or mount bushings that are worn oblong where the center bolt passes through. A good shop can find this after a careful examination. subtle bends are difficult to detect...parts have factory bends in them and unless removed and matched up side by side with a known good part, you would never see the difference. Bending does not always involve an accident. A sideways slide into a curb in snow or even a decent pothole at the right angle can cause a bend. Likely it is not unsafe but it will wear your tires.

Suspension


That's known as negative camber (positive camber would be if the top of the tire were leaning outward). This should be able to be fixed with an alignment as long as the suspension isn't damaged (ie, a bent control arm due to an accident or a hard hit on a curb, pothole, etc).
