How can I get away with setting my caster/camber with out a gauge? I was told to take the shims out of the drivers side and add them to the pass side and that would be real close. Does that seem right? Is there a certain thickness of shims that you want in there or does it vary that much on every car. This is a metric car. Thanks for the help.

For a caster/camber gauge take a piece of tubing that fits tightly over your ball joint threads on the top and the bottom on one side of the tubing it will need to be notched to allow you to slip on to both your ball joint threads. Then take a piece of 3/8 round and weld it a few inches from the end to the the tubing at exactly 90 degrees. When you cut your piece of round rod make it so it will set on your rim without hitting the tire so you can measure camber also. Then you just stick an angle finder on it for your degrees. Hope that helps. Got it from Circle track.
