Material

 With this kit and some inexpensive tubing from your local hardware store, you’ll be able to measure toe and thrust angle on almost any car at home. Plastic parts are 3D printed from extremely durable plastic, and should last years. Everything is covered by the Caliper Garage Guarantee

What’s Included:

  • Four universal vehicle hooks to hang the alignment tool from your car.

  • Eight connection blocks to connect the alignment pipes.

  • Six tubing pads to protect your paint.

  • 20 thumb screws to secure your tubing.

  • Complete instructions explaining how to measure your car's alignment. 

What Else is Required to Measure Toe and Thrust Angle:

  • 3/4” OD tubing (we recommend three eight-foot pieces).

  • String (you’ll need two 20’ pieces).

  • Two plumb bobs to keep the string taught.

  • An accurate ruler.

Please note that you’ll still need a camber gauge to measure camber.

PLA+ material will start to deform at approximately 140 degrees Fahrenheit. If you’ll be storing your kit in direct sunlight for extended periods on warm days, we recommend choosing PETG, which has a higher temperature tolerance.

Like all 3D-printed parts, these kits are not perfect cosmetically. Layer lines and minor imperfections will be visible.

Great deal and great support

I haven’t used it yet, but it appears to be adequate to do the job. I’ve used one of the $500 sets and thought they were overkill for most people, but they never offered a budget set. I was working on a setup that held the cross bars on jack stands when I saw this kit mentioned in Grassroots Motorsports. Having the rig connected to the car is a huge plus as you can roll the car to relax things after making an adjustment and not have to reset the strings. I made a camber gauge with a cheap HF level and a digital angle gauge to go with the strings.

Maybe the best part of my experience so far has been the customer support. I don’t live near a city, so getting the right diameter tubes was a challenge. I contacted Caliper Garage and suggested making a set based on using 1/2” electrical conduit (0.706” OD), very cheap and widely available. A week later they had made one and it was on the way! Unreal.
