This is the JConcepts 85mm Aluminum Camber Gauge. A successful off-road racing program requires precise and accurate setup. Machined from billet aluminum material, the JConcepts ride height gauge is a high spec, detailed instrument that provides the precision your car deserves. The high polish, laser etched gauge features graduated measurements from -10 to +10 degrees for a complete range of camber adjustments. The camber gauge is pre-assembled with 4mm hardware for the pivot and thumbscrew as the setting knob. The structure features chamfered silver edging, highlighting the design. The alignment arm on the gauge is heavily chamfered which creates the perfect touch point against the tire and wheel. Each gauge comes in a latch box with foam insert which fits snugly around the instrument with heavy cushion. When racing gets serious, get precise with JConcepts.
The gauge operates with 2 pivoting pieces which can be secured by using the thumbscrew. Checking the camber starts by first setting the vehicle on a flat surface with the correct ride height and viewing, by eye, the front-end of the vehicle. If the visual camber is close, slide the gauge over to the base of the front tire and pivot the arm up until it touches the tire or wheel surface. At the touch point, secure the thumb screw on the gauge and check the etched marking. Adjust the camber link turnbuckles and repeat for all 4 corners until the desired camber is achieved.
To set camber, secure the thumbscrew on the etched number which is preferred. Slide the gauge over to the base of the front tire and watch for the touch point of the gauge against the tire. If the gauge touches at the top first you must add negative camber to get within the range of your setting. If the gauge touches at the bottom first you’ll need to add positive camber to move within range. After adjustments are made, fine tune until the tire rests top and bottom against the gauge and repeat for all 4 corners until the desired camber is achieved. Features:

NOTE: Changing ride height will also change your camber. If you make a change to the ride height of the chassis you will need to re-adjust the camber.
