How to adjust the camber plate?

Changing the camber of your wheels alters the shape of the contact patch with the road, affecting the amount of grip generated and steering feel. Camber plate adjustment is quick and easy.

1. The camber plate adjustment direction must be perpendicular to the driving direction.
2. Make sure the center bolt is properly tightened.
3. To fasten the top plate to the car, use a wrench or a ratchet and tighten the nuts in place.
4. To adjust the camber angle, loosen the Allen screws on the top plate, slide the camber plate to the desired position and tighten the Allen screws (5lb.ft) back. You may need to jack the vehicle in the process to remove the weight on the suspension and make the adjustment easier.
5. Use the same camber angle on each side of the vehicle.
6. To avoid tire wear, visit a wheel alignment specialist to ensure your alignment is close to manufacturer specs. Excessive tire wear may occur on the inside part of the thread (tire) pretty quickly.
