I had my 1999 ///Mroadster on the scales today and had the camber checked and here are the results:

With half a tank of gas and without a drive it weighed 3,008 pounds.

With a 147 pound driver in the driver seat (not me) the corner weights and camber were as follows

FL = 795 pounds & negative 1 * degrees camber.
FR = 787 pounds & negative 1 degrees camber.
LR = 795 pounds & negative 1 * degrees camber.
RR = 778 pounds & negative 1 degrees camber.

From the left front corner to the right rear corner there was a difference of 15.84 pounds.

From the left rear corner to the right front corner there was a difference of 15.74 pounds.

What do these figures mean? Do you, or does anyone know if these are good? How do you adjust camber, and is it recommended for street driving to gain handling?
