Toe in-Toe Out: Toe in means your wheels, when viewed from above, points towards each other on the front. Toe out is the opposite.robg said:Is as following:
As the car is lowered, camber becomes more negative and the wheels toe-out (tend to face away from each other or toe negative). This makes sense to me, but i finally found a good web page that describes it on some Ford muscle car site of all places.
This means that if a BMW is not aligned in BMW's normally loaded position (with 150 punds each from seat, 150 in the rear, and 50 in the trunk with full fuel tank) which obviously affects ride height, and they try to bring it into BMW's alignment specs, they'd end up making the camber too negative with not enough toe-in-- I guess that would actually be desirable in a track car but would lead to nervous highway handling and greater tire wear.
CHeck the last paragraph:
Camber: Camber is affected when you lower your car. The lower the suspension travel, the more the wheel will tend to bow out on the bottom and point in on the top. That's Negative Camber. When you put your car up on a jack, or when the car is lifted off the ground and the suspension is free to travel, the bottom of the wheel tend to point in and the top of the wheel tend to point out, that's positive camber.
Learned all this from playing Grand Turismo 3.
