I recently purchased a 91 Lebaron it was having front end problems such as alot of toe out 1.45" to be exact and it has alot of negative camber and I can't seem to find out anything on adjusting the camber on this vehicle everybody tells me to take it to a shop and I just can't afford it at this time but it needs to be fixed as the passanger tire has nearly no outer edge left and I refuse to put my daughter in the car til it is fixed thank you for any info in advance. If you could tell me if this car has cam bolts for adjustment and where they are located or if I need to shim the bottom til I reach the right angle.
Do you

Fig. 2 Camber Adjustment. All Except Horizon & Omni

To adjust camber, loosen the cam and through bolts. On all models except 1989 Lancer and LeBaron, Shadow and Sundance and Dynasty, Imperial, New Yorker and New Yorker Fifth Avenue , rotate cam bolt to move top of wheel in or out to obtain specified camber angle. On 1989 Lancer and LeBaron, Shadow and Sundance and Dynasty, Imperial, New Yorker and New Yorker Fifth Avenue , loosen knuckle bolts just enough to allow movement between strut and knuckle, then push or pull tire to obtain specified camber angle. On all models except Horizon and Omni , torque nuts to 75 lb-ft , then advance an additional 1/4 turn. On 1989-90 Horizon and Omni , torque cam bolt nuts to 45 lb-ft , then advance nuts an additional 1/4 turn.
You really need a alignment machine to tell you what your measurement's are set at to do it right.Make sure you adjust camber first because adjusting your camber will change your toe setting.It's going to be impossible to adjust it without a machine so that it doesn't chew your tire's>But good luck to you.
