Default Re: Tire rubbing strut when braking

I am always perplexed when I hear of schemes to make the connection between the knuckle and strut "adjustable", whether by slotting the struts or some special screws with eccentrics. Moving the bottom of the strut relative to the knuckle also changes the king-pin angle (KPA), and that is usually considered to be "fixed". Is it ever even checked, are there any alignment specs for the KPA? Do commercial alignment machines provide for checking it? The proper way to adjust camber is to move the top of the strut.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
