Exc. Independent Front Suspension
No adjustment is provided for camber. If camber is not within specifications, axle or steering knuckle is bent and should be replaced.
Caster may be adjusted by inserting a wedge between the spring and axle. To increase caster insert wedge so that the thick part faces rear of vehicle.
To decrease caster insert wedge so that the thick end is toward front of vehicle.
With the front wheels in straight ahead position, loosen the clamps at each end of both adjusting tubes. Adjust toe-in by turning the tie rod sleeve
which will "center" the steering wheel spokes. If the steering wheel was centered, make the toe-in adjustment by turning both sleeves an equal amount.
Position sleeve clamps so ends do not align in the sleeve slot.
