PostSubject: Really F'd up Camber on one Tire?!   Tue 29 Jun 2010, 1:46 pm

Any thoughts on what would cause a seriously f'd up camber on one tire? Specifically, just took a look and my front driver's tire has shaved off nearly 1/4 of the inside lugs relative to the outside. This has happened since the last tire rotation, i.e. only 5500 miles! That's about 25k miles worth of wear...

Yes, it drives like crap, but it always has - hard to tell if its better or worse than a year ago *grin*

As I understand, camber is not adjustable in the JK wranglers... I've read talk about bent C's and and axles, but I don't see any obvious signs of either.

Doubt it was mounted uneven, as it wasn't re-mounted when last R&B'd.

Primarily, I'm wondering if there's an objective way to measure if either the C or axle is bent (i.e., not "it looks bent", but "the angle from X to Y is too high").

Would that explain a light squeal sound that can only be heard when driving next to a barrier w/ the windows down? =)

Aye, will do when I get home tonight. First I'll do the whole jack-and-spin to see if there's some wobble. (Bent axle/C).

If none there, I'll pull the tire off, and check the joints/hub. I can visually see the camber is highly negative on that side.
