With the aid of an assistant, position
torque rod (10) and bracket (9) on
axle (11) with two screws (8), four
washers (7) and two locknuts (6).
Install same number and
size of spacers as noted
With the aid of an assistant, install
spacers (4), truck end of torque
rod (10), two screws (3), four
washers (2) and two locknuts (1) on
With the aid of an assistant, tighten two
locknuts (6) on screws (8).
Equalizer beams and frame
must be level to perform
Axle camber angle
measurements must be
taken with relationship to
frame. If frame is not level,
the angle the frame is
inclined must be added or
subtracted from the flange
Axle flange assembly
measurement of 86 ± 0.5
degrees equals axle camber
of four degrees ± 0.5 (90
degrees ¸ 86 degrees = 4
Measure the angle (in degrees) that
flange assembly is cambered.
Position protractor and steel plate
on frame at point A. Adjust
protractor to zero degrees.
Position protractor and steel plate on machined surface of the flange assembly and record
measurement. This is point B. Measurement should read 86 degrees ± 0.5 degrees.
If axle camber is not four degrees ± 0.5 degrees, add or subtract spacers (4) until correct axle
camber is achieved.
