hi has anybody tried using a camber castor tool GM (this is a u shape bar with a turnbuckle) on a 93 and up camaro. Is it easy to use and can the adjustment be made with the weight of the car on the ground....or in this case the ramp.

Where Did You Hear Of Camarosource.ca?: Boobs
It is called a J Hook it connects to the K member and the front lower control arm so that you can adjust the alignment while the suspension is loaded...
With out it you will have to keep jacking the car up to adjust it..
The tool lengthens and shortens with gauge holes to adjust the caster and camber..

I did not use it my self I borrowed it from a friend and then his friends shop did the alignment with a laser set-up for me..
They told me without it they would have used pry bars and probably would have not been able to get the adjustments so perfect..

Specs I used..
2002 Camaro F 1.00+5.00 1.00+0.80 -0.20 +/- 0.20
R 0.600 0 +/- 0.30

Thanks for the reply.

Guess I'll have to buy one. I live in the UK hence little chance of borrowing one from somewhere.
