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

What causes front tire wear on inside & outside edges


Under inflation. When the tire doesn't have enough air pressure, the center tends to be pushed up from the road. Thus causing outer wear on both sides. alignment problems cause wear on one side or the other. Over inflation causes the center of the tire to wear .

Camber adjust wheel alignment caster


if the strut comes up inside the mudguard into the engine compartment and there are 3 nuts around the hole the those 3 bolts are the ones which change the castor /camber/ . undo then , lift the car so that they go down inside the holes and turn then 1 space and refit . They are made in a elipse so by turning that plate around the top of the strut moves for alignment. I suggest that you have it done professionally as it will cost tyres if you get it wrong.

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.

Changed all 4 struts on 03 cavalier, now the camber is off on the front wheels..


If you put on new struts the bottom bolt hole is oblong for camber adjustments.Where the old struts bottom hole was not. If you put a jack under the lower control arm, jack the wheel off the ground and adjust the struts camber to where the wheel looks straight.And tighten bolts.

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 may be able to correct camber at the top mounting plate on the mcphearson strut. Also make sure the strut is not bent at the bottom of the tube.

The tires are wear out on the inside and dishing on the outside, is this a sign of wore out struts causing the front to be out of line. What is the fix needed replacw struts in front and new tires


Wearing on the inside can be caused by an excessive camber angle or excessive toe out, or both. Either of these can be caused by worn or damaged suspension parts. Camber affects Caster, and Camber and Caster affect Toe. Toe affects the Thrust Angle. (These are the major suspension angles involved in wheel alignment) The "dishing" or "cupping" is caused by what is sometimes called "wheel-hop" this can be caused by worn-out struts or shocks and can also be caused by tires that are seriously out of balance.

The recommended "Fix" would be to inspect the ENTIRE suspension system to check for loose and/or worn and/or damaged parts. Replace any of these parts as necessary. Then replace and balance the tires and head straight over to the alignment shop to have all of your suspension angles set to manufacturer's specifications. (Most tire stores also have an alignment machine)
