What is rear camber good for?

Generally, camber plays a key-role in cornering performance. If the camber is out of the manufacturer’s range, it can cause handling issues and excessive tire wear, which costs you money. If a vehicle has rear-camber adjustments, adjusting the rear camber plays a big role in straight-line stability and cornering.

How does rear camber affect handling?

Because negative camber allows the car’s tyre to be kept perpendicular to the road as the vehicle moves along, it will enable drivers to achieve a better grip on the road, reduce wheel vibration, and improve vehicle handling.

Is positive or negative camber better?

The general consensus is that a positive camber is good for keeping a recreational vehicle stable, while a negative camber is better for allowing high-performance vehicles to turn corners faster and more accurately.

Is rear negative camber good?

A negative camber can make it easier for the wheels to break loose. If you decide to run a negative camber for your rear wheels, then it becomes easier for the tires to break loose from your regular driving habits. This disadvantage is in addition to the premature wear and tear that can happen on some makes and models.

Does camber affect ride quality?

While positive camber is used to improve ride quality and vehicle stability, high performance vehicles may require better cornering performance. Either way, your vehicle manufacturer will have the exact angles for this setting. We’ll use those angles to properly align the wheel camber.

What is the best camber angle?

For normal, modern cars typically feature a slightly negative camber angle is desired (0.5–1° to ensure a good balance and cornering grip, braking grip and tire wear.

How much negative camber is too much?

For camber, you can go anywhere between -2.5 and -1.8 for your street application. -2.5 should not cause premature wear.

Why do race cars have negative camber?

The tilted tires are now sharing less surface area with the road and consequently have less grip. When performance drivers want maximum cornering control, they put negative camber on all wheels.

Why do race cars run negative camber?

NASCAR ® track secrets Camber: negative camber helps increase grip, especially during heavy cornering. Zero camber wears the tyres more evenly, but doesn’t perform as well in corners. Caster: positive caster helps stabilise the vehicle at high speeds, increasing tyre lean when cornering and increasing steering efforts.

What camber is best for cornering?

For a normal car you typically want to maintain a slight amount of negative camber (0.5 – 1°) to have a good balance of cornering grip, braking grip, and tire wear. On most vehicles it’s common to have slightly more negative camber (0.8 – 1.3°) in the rear to reduce the chances of oversteer (loss of grip in rear).

How much camber is too much?

What happens if camber is off?

Improper camber can make the tire wear on one edge and may cause the vehicle to pull to the side that has the most positive camber. Zero camber will result in the most uniform tire wear over time, but may reduce performance during cornering.

How do you adjust rear camber?

  • GranTurismoOmologato. Let me know if you find some good spacers,I have been looking for them.
  • Gravana Jim. After the springs my rear camber is at -1.8 degrees,way too much.
  • Trapper. If you are a drag racer,then I agre that is too much camber on the drive wheels.

  • How to correct camber after lowering your car?

    Tighten the upper control arm and replace the tire. Lower the car and check the camber again. Some vehicles have a built-in offset bolt that will help with camber adjustment. You need to loosen the non-camber bolt on the control arm first with an impact wrench.

    What can cause camber problems?

    – Instability at highway speeds. – Vehicle “tips” to one side in turns. – The front end dives more than expected during hard braking. – Rear-end squat during acceleration. – Tires bouncing excessively. – Unusual tire wear. – Leaking fluid on the exterior of shocks or struts.

    Can rear camber be adjusted?

    Yes. The rear camber has a huge adjustment margin. Not so much at the front though. Good Luck! Great! What angle are you aiming for? Great! What angle are you aiming for?
