Suspension Basics: Camber, Caster, and Toe
Going fast is nice, but cutting through the turns without letting off the throttle is just as nice and just as important as having tons of horsepower. But where do you start? This is a question often ignored by many first time suspension tuners, so we decided to throw together a little guide to better explain some key components in suspension geometry.
If you're new to the car scene, you've likely never heard of suspension geometry or what it's comprised of: camber, caster, and toe. There are a few other aspects in suspension geometry which help line everything up, but these three are the most commonly referred to by alignment shops and suspension tuners alike.
Plain and simple, perfect suspension geometry is achieved by having these terms within factory specs, but there are also certain instances where imperfect geometry is necessary. Our suspension beginners guide goes over these three keywords, perfect and imperfect suspension geometry scenarios, and how modifying different areas of the car can affect camber, caster, and toe to get your desired results.
So check out our article on suspension settings, and let us know how you feel about it. We're excited to hear your thoughts and input!
