    Default Negative Camber

    I have negative camber on the off side front and none on the near side. The car pulls to the left as i am always steering to the right to compensate.

    Any Ideas. I have had a look and nothing seemd to be bent or broken.

    Cheers

    Hmm, front's shouldn't have any, not sure if its adjustable on the front (others may confirm).

    Could be strut mounts maybe, do you get any knocking/rattles?

    Front camber adjustment is minimal, can you see the negative camber in the wheel? Sounds like a suspension bush has packed in somewhere

    had a look under the car and there seems to be tool marks on the rods that are adjustable.

    If you mean the track (tie) rods, then they won't affect camber.

    Top mount or top mount bush prehaps...?

    Rod ends only affect the side direction and not the top bottom angle if that makes sense....

    I'd say your best bet is to get your car on a Hunter machine. www.alignmycar.co.uk

    They'll inspect the suspension, then run the tests and show you exactly what's wrong with the geometry.

    Most ATS' now have alignment machines comparable to the hunter machines - makes them far more accessible.
