Camber and Caster Question

Hey guys,read as much as I can but I can't seem to get my answer. Can weak shocks effect my camber? Everything is tight and my a arms look good but I have a slight negative camber on the right side and was wondering if weak shock could be the problem.

thanks

Get in close and really look at the attachment tabs for the upper and lower A-Arms. If the holes for the bolts are oval shaped they can cause the arm to sit in or out causing camber issues, also if the upper/lower arm has a slight bend, that too would cause it to be top in. Weak shocks I think would just make it bounce more. Does it sit flat when your on it?

Hey Oilcan, I looked at the attachment tabs and all looks well, I lifted the machine up and wiggled the tire and it's tight both top and bottom and side to side, the A-arm on the one side looks okay ( I might take some detailed measurements but form eyeball it looks okay.) I had a friend sit on it and it's sits flat. I might just be picky but it is so noticeable from the rear of the machine.


When I depress the shocks they shoot back right away but there is no hissing noise when the come back. That's the only thing that I can is might be the issue.


How do you set the camber and caster. My service manual doesn't mention anything.


Thanks.

Oilcan and Tincan...., You two related? LOL

There is no Caster/Camber adjustment, just toe in and toe out..

You funny , Mr. Rooftop. I think the air your breathin is thincan....

What Ultratec said.... Doubt a shock would have anything to do with camber. Lookin is never "good enough" measure from the same points on each side of the frame, best done with the front plastic removed... you can also get a good cleaning done and check the valves while your in there. Maybe the frame has a tweak... you will soon see with the ol measurin tape thingey....

Hey Guys, well I finally got some new shocks on ( just been workin to much) and it stiffened up the front end which I was looking for BUT the right side STILL has 0-2 degree negative camber and the left side has a nice 2-3 degree postive camber. So looking at it it looks like the upper A arm is the problem. So I want to change the A-arm and the ball joint and try that. Can you give me a quick 1...2...3... on how to replace OR is there a link....Do I need a tool for the ball joint to remove or?


Thanks guys
