requires a level parking surface - or a known angle of grade.bkubisht said:Use an angle finder on top of the flat part of your histeer arms between the studs, This gives a good caster measurement so you know if you need shims.
should the 1/8'' toe in be measured at the rim? bc an 1/8" toe in at front and back of a 31 will be alot different on a 36... Or did I miss something.bkubisht said:Use an angle finder on top of the flat part of your histeer arms between the studs, This gives a good caster measurement so you know if you need shims. Or set caster so that the driveshaft flanges are at correct angle.
For Toe, just measure with measuring tape at front and back of tire. I run 1/8 - 1/16" toe in.
If you've adjusted your camber then you're in deep trouble!
I have allways had good results from 2 to 6 Degrees.Haggar said:Yeah, definately best to do it Roger's method. Measuring right of the tires is tough to find spots that are nice and even on the tire. Especially on my swampers..
What numbers are people running for Caster?
I've always had Jeeps, which seemed to like more caster, 5-6-7 degrees.. I know my yota is running more than stock now, with the stock spring hanger, and longer than stock shackles. I'm fighting deathwobble at the moment.
X2 ..... that is the easy wayIronClad said:for quick toe in/out me and a bud just barely screwed a screw into each tire (by hand.. just enough in the tred block to make sure it would stay) and measured.. then rotated the tire and measured again.. worked awesome
This is discussed on the web page I posted above:4rnr said:what im saying though is the measurement of 1/8" is going to change as you move toward the edges of the tire. 1/8 @ the edge of a 31 is going to be maybe 1/2" at the edge of a 36" or am I retarded
