Negative Camber or Drivers Right Wheel

Just noticed my 2008 gen III razor has a little negative camber (approx 1/2" delta between the bottom to top of the outside of the tire) on the drivers side rear wheel, but the passenger side has no camber at all. Could this be a manufacturing problem or did I really hit something hard enough to bend something? Any ideas?

Re: Negative Camber on Drivers Right Wheel

I have looked all over the rear suspension and there does not seem to be anywhere I can adjust the camber for the rear wheels. Am I missing some adjustment?

Re: Negative Camber or Drivers Right Wheel

Camber is not adjustable....at least not by design....I have had a stump adjust my camber once however. A sagging spring on that corner can give the appearance of more negative camber as the suspension on that corner is in a compressed state relative to the other corners. A quick way to check for this problem is by getting a measurement from the top of the upper A-arm to a stable point above on the chassis and compare to measuring the same points on the opposite side. To be accurate the points on the chassis must not be bent. If the distance is less on the side in question it is likely spring sag (not uncommon with the stock springs. If the distances are the same then jack up that corner and check for play in the wheel/hub in the axis of camber. A bad bearing or bushings can increase the negative camber. If the hub bearing is bad you should also have some brake bind when the hub/rotor is tipped inward into the pads (in this case you may also not the top of the inboard and bottom of the outboard pads unevenly worn)
