As part of a rear wheel alignment on the 2014 Corvette Stingray, the rear wheel caster must be set. This requires a Digital Angle Gauge and an adapter to attach the gauge to the rear knuckles. The gauge must be capable of accurately measuring to 0.1 degree. It must also have a calibration feature and a magnetic base so it will attach to the adapter.
Digital Angle Gauge
The Digital Angle Gauge is not an essential tool as there are several suppliers available in the aftermarket.
Tool suppliers that offer the gauge include:
• SPX; order tool number CH-47960, Digital Angle Gauge, directly from SPX
• Wixey WR300; contact firstname.lastname@example.org
• iGauging AngleCube; contact info@iGaging.com, or 1-949-366-5708
Digital Angle Gauge Adapter
The Digital Angle Gauge Adapter, CH-47960-10, is not available on the aftermarket and will be part of the essential tool package.
