with the wheels straight, put the gauge on center of hub and read the camber level, this is that wheels camber is, for caster turn the wheel away from the car 20 degrees, so the front of the tire is away from the frame rail. level the gauge and set 0 on the caster gauge, now turn your wheels back to straight then past straight 20 degrees the opposite way of what you started, level the gauge and read caster vial, this is your caster reading for this wheel, repeat on the other side, if you don't have a set of turn plates to get 20 degrees, the angles machined on the back of the gauge are machined at 20 degrees just square them up with the side of the car. this is also discussed in detail further down the post,
