What is an alignment camber wedge kit?
An alignment camber wedge kit is a set of two wedge-shaped, adjustable camber plates that mount to the top of the strut housing. They are used to adjust the camber alignment of the vehicle, which is the angle of the wheel in relation to the vehicle’s centerline.
What is the purpose of an alignment camber wedge kit?
Alignment camber wedge kits are used to adjust the camber angle of the wheel and to compensate for any misalignment caused by lowered suspensions or any road and track conditions. Adjusting the camber angle helps to keep the tires in contact with the road and improves handling, stability, and steering.
How can I tell if my alignment camber wedge kit is faulty?
If your alignment camber wedge kit is faulty, you may notice that your vehicle is pulling to one side, or you may experience poor handling and steering response. Also, if you have an alignment inspection, your camber angle may be out of alignment.
Can a faulty alignment camber wedge kit cause damage?
Yes, a faulty alignment camber wedge kit can cause damage to the tires and suspension components. If the camber angle is not properly adjusted, the tires will not be in contact with the road surface and will wear unevenly. Also, the stress on the suspension components can cause premature wear and tear.
How do I replace an alignment camber wedge kit?
Replacing an alignment camber wedge kit is a relatively simple task:
- Raise the vehicle and secure it on jack stands.
- Remove the wheel and loosen the upper strut nut.
- Remove the camber wedge plates and replace them with the new ones.
- Reinstall the wheel and adjust the camber angle with the wedge plates.
- Re-tighten the upper strut nut and lower the vehicle.
