Product Description

Use this simple level to restore a vehicle's camber setting after strut repair or installation. This allows the technician or customer to safely drive the vehicle before a more precise wheel alignment can be performed. It's more accurate than other methods. Also useful for repairs on CV joints, ball joints and tie rod ends. It's easy to use, simply place on the rotor before repair and zero the level. Then tighten the wing nut. Finally after the repair, push or pull on the strut until the level returns to zero position.

would have given 5 stars if not for the wingnut. Failed on first attempt to tighten it up; another case of Standard vs Metric. Luckily had something to replace it with.

Tool itself worked fine. Not sure about accuracy, but at least it allowed to judge adjustment of left and right sides to keep cross camber inline. The wingnut allows to set zero, so you are painlessly measuring relative adjustment not the actual numbers. Which is really useful when can't 100% level car.

And when you look at alternatives you just can't beat the price.

As advertised, provides a way of restoring camber after a lowering from springs/suspension changes. We found the magnet so strong it was hard to remove from the brake disc without altering the level. So it can work easier by taking the magnet out, press firmly to the disc, adjust to zero, then set aside, do your mods, then restore camber to zero position. For doing both sides of the car, note difference in the level (if the car is not perfectly flat), and restore the difference.

The magnet is pretty weak and it doesn't take much to knock it "out of calibration" but if you're very careful it will work out for you. I'll probably end up doing some modifications to it to make it sturdier.

This is a good DIY tool for saving the expense of a full alignment if you have a vehicle that drives nice but shows tire wear on the inside or outside. I just jack the wheel off the ground and remove it. Then place this on the strut and set it to zero and tighten the wing nut down real good. Loosen the strut bolts and do whatever.

The intended purpose is good too. Zero it on the strut and the tenderly remove it and carefully set it out of the way. Replace your axle or strut or whatever. When you reassemble then put this carefully back on the strut and adjust the strut bolts so it is at zero again and tighten things down.

Bought this when I was in a pinch and needed to find the tool quickly for a project - it does not seem to hold the measurement as accurately as I had hoped for. There are better ones out there but you get what you pay for.

Makes a great paper weight! I had to modify it out of the box to get it to work. The wing nut couldn't sufficiently tighten the hinge to prevent the gauge from moving. It seemed as if they used a SAE nut on a SI bolt, it simply wouldn't tighten enough before jumping the threads. A couple rubber washers and the correct nut (M6x1.0 if i remember correctly) seems to have done the trick. Just need it to be good enough to ballpark the angles. I guess I won't know how it did until I get an actual alignment done.

Looks like a nice tool, but the magnet came off on my 1st use of the tool...
tried to re glue it nothing seems to hold... kind of waste, should of made away of screwing the magnet to the base... not a very storng magnet.

This tool performs as advertised. The level and base need to lock together more securely. Once set, I needed to use caution when removing it from brake disc so as not to change setting. I don't believe it would be possible to perform any work on the vehicle with this tool in place without having the setting change. That being said, I would recommend this tool to the DIY mechanic. Using this is easier and more accurate than using scribe marks to facilitate reassembly.
