Independent Front Suspension
Front suspension height must be checked and corrected as necessary prior to checking wheel alignment.
1. Remove all foreign material from exposed threads of cam adjusting bolt nuts or pivot bar adjusting bolt nuts.
2. Record initial camber and caster readings before loosening cam bolt nuts or pivot bar bolt nuts.
3. On vehicles using cam bolts, the camber and caster is adjusted by loosening the cam bolt nuts and turning the cam bolts as necessary until the
desired setting is obtained. On vehicles using pivot bars, tool C-4581 or equivalent is required to adjust caster and camber. When performing
adjustments, the camber settings should be held as close as possible to the "desired" setting, and the caster setting should be held as nearly equal as
possible on both wheels.
