JConcepts Aluminum Camber Gauge (85mm) (Black)
The gauge operates with 2 pivoting pieces which can be secured by using the thumbscrew. Checking the camber starts by first setting the vehicle on a flat surface with the correct ride height and viewing, by eye, the front-end of the vehicle. If the visual camber is close, slide the gauge over to the base of the front tire and pivot the arm up until it touches the tire or wheel surface. At the touch point, secure the thumb screw on the gauge and check the etched marking. Adjust the camber link turnbuckles and repeat for all 4 corners until the desired camber is achieved.
To set camber, secure the thumbscrew on the etched number which is preferred. Slide the gauge over to the base of the front tire and watch for the touch point of the gauge against the tire. If the gauge touches at the top first you must add negative camber to get within the range of your setting. If the gauge touches at the bottom first you’ll need to add positive camber to move within range. After adjustments are made, fine tune until the tire rests top and bottom against the gauge and repeat for all 4 corners until the desired camber is achieved.
