Front end alignment = no camber adjustment.

After 40,000 I needed to get a set of tires and also a 4 wheel alignment on my 2015 limited v6 fwd. Found out theres no camber adjustment in the front but the rear had 1 lol. Everything was pretty close except for the toe in front. The oem tires were wearing a grove on the front inner rib and everything was wearing even. On the 2 srt8 jeeps I had the front tires did the same thing in 20,000 miles and both yrs had way to much stock - camber and as so I we lowered the camber way down the tire problem went away but the cherokee has no front camber adjustments. They do have a rear camber adjustments but that's not helping my front tire problem lol. I never rotated the tires but this time I will lol.

The lack of front camber adjustment has me baffled. There is no reason they could not have set it up with adjustment. There is a minor adjustment that can be done if it's not even left to right, but that involves sliding the whole front subframe across.

And yes, tyre rotation is important when you can't adjust the camber!

Re: Front end aligment = no camber adjustment.

There are adjustments, and this thread has been discussed numerous times. I'll see if i can provide the link the document I created in detail, unless someone finds it before me.
