Default Camber setup

Is there an easy way to measure the camber angle without a setup board?

Is there a way that doesn't require buying stuff? (trying to spend less)

Get a ruler - put it on the rims facing up. You want to use the side of the ruler to get a line.

Get a protractor and line it up... Easy..

Or make your own camber gauge. Not hard to figure out. Just rule a line, do a 90degree... then a 91deg, then a 92degree. Done.

Do it on stiff cardboard or plastic sheet..

loosen the screw that is in the center of the gauge ,put it next to your tire. hold the bottom piece of the gauge through your thumb and hold the upper piece with your index finger...while your other hand tighten the screw.to hold the measurement...thats it
