Default Camber adjustment.....

I just had 12x7 wheels put on my 2007 club car precedent. Standing in front of the cart the drivers side tire is leaned in at the top. The other side is ok. Does anyone know how to adjust this? I read up and is this negative camber?? Oh, and it's not lifted, just regular golf playing cart.

Put the cart on jack stands, look under the front spring. In the center there is a large nut with a smaller nut in the middle of it. Loosen the large nut, and turn the center nut to adjust the camber. Just so you know what is going on, the smaller nut is off center and the larger nut is set in an oblong hole....so when you turn it, it "wobbles" around to adjust the camber...pretty neat setup.
After you find your desired camber, tighten the large nut.


Hope that made sense....its easier than I described.

I looked under the cart and I can't find where your talking about. I just saw the tie rods and the shock boot leading back to the middle. Did not see where u described. A buddy of mine said it looked like I could just loosen the jam nut and turn the tie rod to fix it. Is that a possibility??

I have an 07 Precedent and just bought new 12x6 wheels.....driver side tire leaning a bit like you described. The nut is in the very center of the front leaf spring. You will need to jack up the front end, place jack stands under each side of the frame and remove the jack itself to be able to see the nut (where you place the jack is basically where the nut it). I'm going to adjust mine today and post pics.

Just found this post: installed lift, now to adjust the camber

I put the cart on stands and took off the front light assembly. The only large nut I saw was a big jam nut. I took it off and turned the one inside of it. It popped out and a small spring came out so I am not sure that was the right one. I put it back together. Do u have a pic of which nut it is??

Is your cart lifted? An All-Sports lift kit eliminates the camber adjustment you're referring to and utilizes a much better design of their own.

No, it's not lifted. Just have 12 x 7 wheels and low profile tires.

Only the passenger side is leaned in from the top out to the bottom. Drivers side is cool.

Just out of curiosity, was there an issue with the stock wheels and tires?
