    Camber tool

    Doing the alignment of the rear suspension today and had to dig out a tool I made years ago to check camber thought I’d share pics of it as its easterly made from a piece of alloy or plastic, a piece of thread and a weight (I used a small fishing weight) would be useful for setting up swing axles accuratelyDSC_0513[6748].jpg_20201004_184705[6709].jpg_20201004_184822[6708].jpg

    So you use this like a spirit-level on the axle itself, or on the rim of the wheel?
    I would be interested to know what settings your using.

    Hi Steve use it against the rim or tyre Screenshot (163).jpg

    use a protractor to scribe the lines so the drop line will give you the degree angle ,could do a short video to show how to use it

    Got it - thanks. How many degrees of negative camber will you set?

    There is a free inclinometer app which you can download onto your mobile phone.
    I used it for my car, very useful.
