What type of vehicle is it?
I am wearing out tires because of my tires tilting out, I have been into
the shop and they keep telling me that my camber is within normal
specs...am I going to mess anything up by just having someone make the
damn things straight?
If your wearing our tires ..Then it is not in spec...What is the
measurement they gave you ? Also did they give you a printout ,of before
and after? I suggest two things .First off go get a second opinion...And
ask for a printout...If they cant give you a record of the settings they
probly are just setting the toe and not the camber or caster.Which if
the camber is "good" what is the caster looking like?..There should be
some type of garentee as to tire wear..This give you the good feeling
that the job was done right...For about every auto there are "specs" but
as anyone who works on autos knows "specs"sometimes done work...So Heres
my advice Camber L 0.0 R 0.0
Caster L 2.0 R 2.5 Toe L 0.0 R 0.0
This is the spec that I was taught when all else fails....Even if it all
lined you need to make sure none of the frontend is worn ...Balljoints
pitman idler tierods ect....Or you may still have drag and tire wear....
