No, this is the incorrect answer. It is definitely - on the front and + on the rear

Camber is like this:



Tire leaning out from center at top is positive camber and leaning into center at top is negative.

guys look carefully at the pics, you will see on the pics with the bumper in view, the gauge pointer is closer to the chassis side of zero ie indicating that the top of the wheel is leaning out, thats positive camber

The rears are opposite of the fronts and is indicating -2.5 camber

Upon closer inspection of the pics, you guys are correct. I just assumed it was negative because I've never seen anyone run positive camber.

Thanks guys, yea its positive in the front. I just got the Hudy system and was trying to make some adjustments. I removed the horse-shoe inserts from the front arms and saw that I had positive camber in the front. I've adjusted it to make it negative.

Is it me or does anyone else find it easier to adjust toe and camber with those horse-shoe inserts removed entirely from the front?

Think I much prefer this system for toe adjustments:
