After waiting months for the GM C7 rear caster gauge adapter to become available I decided to make some.
Test fitment on a C7/Z06: 20160602_145047.jpg 20160602_145110.jpg 20160602_145355.jpg 20160602_145508.jpg 20160602_145619.jpg 20160602_151117.jpg
Car was on a lift with suspension at full droop.
Reading is only accurate with suspension at normal ride height on level ground.
OEM specs are 0 degrees caster +or- .08 degree.
Best handling is 0 to +.05 degree.
Pictures were only to show that a conventional angle gauge or OEM Guage will work with this adapter.

Thanks for the info. I don't track my car, but I never really thought about the need for a rear alignment until I scheduled an appointment with the dealer for a "four wheel alignment".

Do you have any comments on lowering the car using the adjustment stock bolts?
I adjusted my Z06 to the lowest level and had a terrible negative camber on the front end that I never noticed until a few days ago. Excessive wear on the inside edges of the fronts wasn't noticed until I blew a tire.

Will the rear end have a similar issue?

Just as an FYI- Since my adjustment, I have about 3K miles on my new rear tires and have not seen any abnormal wear.
