ARGH!!! > > Thank you Jim. It is one of the parameters that gets checked on a 4 wheel alignment. Have you had that done recently? You can check camber yourself at home. Find a level place to park and hold a carpenter square against the wheel, or better yet hold a carpenter level alongside the wheel in a plumb position. Measure the distance from the square/level to a flat surface on the outside of the wheel lip at the top and bottom of the wheel and find the difference. Do the same on the other side. Knowing that difference between top and bottom and the vertical distance between these two points you should be able to calculate the angle with a little math. camber = inverse sin (measured distance / vertical length).
