    Camber/Caster Measurement Question

    I understand that the camber/caster gauge must be square to the spindle, but is there any requirement for the camber/caster gauge to be in any particular vertical plane, such as the edge of the rim?

    I think I want to build a fixture so that I can easily measure my camber & caster without having to remove the wheel spinner (recognizing of course that any adjustment would almost certainly require taking the wheel off).

    Thanks,

    As long as it is on the same plane as your spindle/hub, that is fine. They sell gauges that you attach to the rim. Be mindful though, that you need to make sure the surface you are on is dead level and does not have a grade to it.
