Getting the Wheeling Fever
Positive camber creates stability, i get that. But i hate the look of it and wont it wear the outside of the tires ? And after a turn and i let up on the steering wheel it returns to center, factory knows best, but i still dont care for it.
Any harm in changing it ?

The last front end alignment I had on my 87 Raider, the tech set the caster to 1 degree. The area that I lived in, then, had badly crowned roads and it made no sense to have too much positive adjustment. I put 60K miles on afterward with no appreciable to tire difference. I don't think your eye would pick up on the caster difference as easily as camber. My $0.02.

Getting the Wheeling Fever
Was reading that alot of people just go with 0* camber.
Ive not had the chance to see what shims it has. When i do the brake rotors and wheel bearings ill see.
So long as the bolts ar long enough ill try and get it at 0*...
Also set toe at 0 instead of what ever it is now, definitely toe in what ever it is..
