    Hi, Camber is the tilt of the wheel from top to bottom, It is adjusted by bending or straightening the axle. Crosleys have weak front axles and lose there

        stronger-pos. camber wears the outside of the tire-neg. the inside--
        something like that--camber isn't a major problem-unless it's way
        off.--CASTER is & will make the car pull right of left & give way to
        bump steer. Hope this helps in some way
