What can cause camber problems?
Likewise, what causes negative camber?
A major cause of inside tire wear is a car's front end being out of alignment. This can be caused by hitting pot holes, curbs or driving on rough roads. If the bottoms of the tires lean to the outside, you have negative camber which can cause excessive inner tire wear.
Subsequently, question is, what causes positive camber? Tilting the tire centerline outward from the vehicle creates positive camber, tilting it inward makes negative camber. Because camber directly affects tire wear, incorrect camber causes premature tire wear.
Thereof, what causes camber misalignment?
Camber misalignment can be caused by a sagging spring, a bent strut, bent spindle, worn control arm bushing, worn ball joint, or mislocated strut tower (too far in or out).
Will an alignment fix camber?
A wheel alignment service can consist of a front wheel, thrust angle, or a four wheel alignment. The common alignment angles are camber, caster and toe. On most vehicles this angle is set in a positive manner which assists in steering and vehicle stability at higher speeds. This angle does not usually affect tire wear.
