$50 DIY Digital Camber Gauge

Recommended Posts

This is probably the easiest thing you'll ever make. This is such a great tool for the track guys and autocrossers.


What you need:


2 ~1.5in bolts

4 washers

2 wing nuts

2 regular nuts (or rounded endcaps if you prefer)

1 36in piece metal stock with 90 degree bend and pre slotted/drilled (you would probably be ok with a 24in piece as long as you don't have a donk)

1 digital level. I have this one available at Home Depot for $40: http://www.homedepot.com/buy/tools-hardware/hand-tools/husky/9-in-digital-level-115526.html

Here's a Craftsmen model for under $30: http://www.sears.com/craftsman-digital-torpedo-level/p-00948295000P?prdNo=1&blockNo=1&blockType=G1





Put it all together. For the slow people, here's how to assemble the bolts. The level I used and the Craftsmen one I linked are both magnetic. Note...nut should be flush with tip of the bolt for measurement. It gives it a little scratch protection.



Take a measurement. The car should be on a flat surface. If the car is not level, your results will be off. Finding a perfectly level surface to park your car on could very well be the most challenging aspect of this. Measure from the part of the lip closest to the ground to the part of the lip closest to the sky. Hopefully your lip isn't bent or rashed too badly.



Boom. -2.2. Dead on balls accurate. It's an industry term.
