Wheel Alignment Explained - What is camber ..

This is the inward or outward angle of the tire when viewed from the front of the vehicle. Too much inward or outward tilt, also known as negative and positive camber, respectively, indicates improper alignment and will need to be adjusted. Worn bearings, ball joints, and other wheel-suspension parts may contribute to camber misalignment.

Rear camber is just as important, too. If there is a difference between rear camber alignment, the rear axle can drift to one side or the other, creating a condition similar to rear axle steer that makes the vehicle steer crooked.

Wheel Alignment Explained - Illustrated Tutorial

Camber refers to the vertical tilting of a vehicles wheels when seen from the front of the car. If the wheels tilt outward at the top of the tire, the camber is referred to as positive. If the tire tilts inward, then the camber is called negative. A camber alignment aligns the camber of the wheels so they are parallel to each other.
