Diy alignment
Ok guys here we go again bare with me I'm getting close to figure ing this out after talking to John yesterday I am comfortable with rotors calipers and spindle knuckle all being correct . I noticed last night that there seems to be alot of negative camber in the wheels so much that calipers bind on rotors when t try to slide them on . My question is does anyone know of a way to adjust the camber without the alignment tool as I have searched and can't find one I am in a massive time crunch so any info will help

If the car is on a good concrete garage floor, eyeball it to a carpenter's framing square. Will be close for the short term.

You want about 1/2 degree positive camber. You can try using a level to get it even from top to bottom and then adjust it so it tilts out a hair. Without having a degree tool that's probably about the best you are going to do.

Going by the diagram I can see what you are talking about regarding the tool. I imagine it's doable without it.
