So its been a while since I've posted anything(mainly cuz I was tired of having to remember complicated passwords for tons of different sites so I just read as a guest here and stopped logging in:-0) but I had a question about the camber on my bike.

So here's the skinny:

2015 Honda Rubicon FM5 (No PS)
The front left wheel has noticeable negative camber when looking head on at it and when putting a level on it it is out about 1/4" in 10" the right side is dead nuts on. I've not really ever noticed it before but I've not ever really looked for it either. Looking at the A-arms I see no noticeable differences between the sides(such as damage). I don't see that there is any way to adjust the camber. Any insight is much obliged.

Eric

Have you checked the hub ball joints and wheel bearings for excessive play?

Hmm.. You'll have to take some measurements and see what's up. Something is a miss. Not just an out of shape tyre or a different pressure causing it is it?

Nah, I'm at a miss too. I've tried jacking up and finding slop, let it back down on cardboard n wax to make sure the suspension is going back to a neutral position. (I've done alignments on cars back in my teen's when I worked for an auto body shop I am no pro by any means but I'm dangerous enough to have an idea of what I'm doing) The way the suspension is setup on this bike there is no (that I see) adjustment for the camber. Not like its a show stopper but things like this are like food in your teeth it bothers the crap out of me and I want to remedy it!!!

Any pictures might help for users to see, some of the guys on here have a very keen eye and are pretty hot at spotting a fault.
