A system for wheel alignment is provided including adjustments to camber, toe, and thrust. A sleeve is fitted over the spindle of an axle. Rotation of the sleeve relative to the spindle provides for adjustments to wheel alignment while a locking feature such as e.g., a pin, is used to maintain the selected position of the sleeve relative to the spindle. The available positions of the sleeve relative to the spindle are predetermined in order to provide for discrete, known adjustments to the alignment of the wheel.
1. An assembly allowing selective adjustment of wheel alignment on a vehicle, comprising: an axle defining axial, radial, and circumferential directions, the axle comprising a flange and a spindle having an outboard end and an inboard end;a sleeve having an inner surface of revolution about a first axis and an outer surface of revolution about a second axis, wherein the first axis and the second axis are at a non-zero angle α from each other, the sleeve defining an interior into which the spindle is releasably received, the sleeve having an inboard end a...
