Caster and Camber

We just split the wishbones on a 31 ford coupe, all parts are in original position, and we need to know how to figure out where to weld the brackets for the rear wishbones. How do you measure the camber or caster?? Is there a simple way to do this??

Thanks

Castor

Simple way that i know of is to use one of those magnetic protractors at the kingpin and then move the wishbone end up and down until the correct castor is had..that tells where the locating arms should be attached..

the simpler way is to use what we call a hairpin as those can be adjusted..

To adjust the camber you have to actually bend the axle...takes big jacks and a jig..and a rosebud torch..
