Would like to know if anyone has had problems with the Paco hubstands, or more likely, if I'm doing something wrong. This is my first time doing setup, and I'm using the hubstands from Paco, wireless scales from Intercomp, and an Accuremote angle gauge that I got with the hubstands. With the car on the scales and stands, I'm able to get almost exact 50/50, a consistent ride height of 4 3/8 (with the wheels back on), and camber at -3.8-4.0* all around. I also set the toe to zero for all 4 wheels using the little "ruler" brackets that come with the hubstands.
I didn't expect to get a perfect toe measurement with the stands, so when I checked it again with the wheels on, using toe-plates just to be sure, the rear was showing 1/4" toe in. Before I made a toe adjustment I checked rear camber with a Smartcamber gauge (which I had just calibrated, as I did with the Accuremote one as well), it showed camber of 2.5*. Concerned now that the measurements are inconsistent, I put the Accuremote gauge flat against the hub of the rim, and it read 2.6*.
Now I'm confused. I'm probably violating some rule about using multiple tools for the same measurements, but I wanted to make sure the toe was right.
Any thoughts? This is my first time doing this, so I'm not surprised if I'm doing something wrong.
I appreciate any insight others may have.
