Castor is used to give straight–line stability and directional control at vehicle speed. Castor also assists self-centring of the steering after a steering turn has been made. Castor can simply be described as the backward or forward tilt of the MacPherson strut or hub assembly when the vehicle wheel is viewed from the side.
Camber is the inward or outward angle or lean of the wheels as seen from looking at the front of the vehicle. Camber applies to both front and rear wheels of the vehicle. Camber is used to distribute the vehicle load evenly across the tyre/road contact print, in order to minimize tyre wear.
Toe-in & Toe-out
Toe-in and toe-out are generally the most understood of all the wheel alignment terms. When measuring toe we are looking at how parallel the wheels are in relation to each other, when viewed from above. Toe-in or toe-out sets the position of the wheels change between the vehicle being stationary (static) or moving (dynamic).
