14-9. LONGITUDINAL TORQUE ROD REPLACEMENT (CONT).
Frame must be level to perform axle camber adjustment properly.
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 flange assembly
Axle flange measurement of 87 ± 0.5 degrees equals axle camber of three degrees ± 0.5
(90 degrees 87 degrees = 3 degrees).
Measure the angle (in degrees) that flange assembly is cambered.
Position protractor and steel plate on frame at point A. Adjust protractor to zero.
Position protractor and steel plate on machined surface of the flange assembly and record
measurement. This is point B. Measurement should read 87 degrees ± 0.5 degrees.
If axle camber is not three degrees ± 0.5 degrees, add or subtract spacers (14) until correct axle
camber is achieved.
