    Default How to correct CAMBER issue

    If a 4X4 develops camber problem like in the front tube or even in the rear tube, what's the solution to it. In the front tube, the problem can be of turning bearings but suppose they are fine and the tube has a problem either by being hit by anything or by some jerk. Like tow in or tow out issue.
    I have heard that in pindi near raja bazar a person can correct it. Has anyone got any idea of it?

    What have you done? , is the question.

    Tow and camber a inter-connected and can be fixed by alignment.
    If you have hit something and there is a bend/dent, then that needs to be done away with first.
    Only then can you adjust it back with alignment.

    Tubes can be bent, very easy, it was my specialty during Jimny days, open it, empty it and take it to a press, they will straighten it, problem will be fixed.

    Dont know about RWP, but in Lahore there is one workshop of Ustad Ibrahim near Qila de Ghati, close to Badami Bagh Truck Adda who are specialists of ironing tubes, I was his regular customer, after almost every rally it was a must visit place

    @sarmad/ saidhi, thanks for replying. It's with a newly purchased vehicle of a friend who doesn't use net so he asked me to check from pakwheels. I think it's a bend from the outer portion of the tube, before the start of the hub. It looks if the rim was hit from side and from top which has resulted the "tow in" issue. The below pic is of the front hub of my suzuki, just for reference.
    And if the alignment man gives u any figure in degrees, how will u explain it to the person removing the fault by bending the tube.

    I never needed to give them any readings, they checked it on their own with a 5 to 6 feet long rod that they used to take measurements with. Once they worked on it, there never was any issue with alignment, till of course i would bend it again during the next rally
