FC Holden Front End. FX to HD is very similar. There are no Ball Joints (has Brass Bushes instead), so the Camber and Caster Adjustment is done at the Upper Wishbone outer point by a Cam. Photo by HRPremier. Click to Enlargen.
    

Wheel Alignment:

FX - HD Holdens:

Castor and Camber is Adjusted by loosening the Pinch Bolt on the Upper Control Arm Outer and rotating the Cam. Camber is made increasingly positive by rotating the Cam so that the Top of the Wheel moves outwards. Castor is made more positive by rotating the Cam to move the Cam rearward. Castor and Camber are a compromise of the 2 adjustments. Re-tension the Pinch Bolt once done.
Castor and Camber is adjusted on HR, HK, HT, HG, HQ, HJ, HX, HZ, WB, LC, LJ, LH, LX and UC using Shims as shown in the Photo. Photo and images by Qute, DannyW for the left image and Veight for the right. Click to Enlargen.
 

HR - WB Holdens:

HR, HK, HT, HG, HQ, HJ, HX, HZ, WB, LC, LJ, LH, LX and UC Models have their Castor and Camber altered by the addition or removal of Shims where the Upper Control Arm is bolted to the Chassis (see the Photo). Adding Shims equally reduces the Camber only.  Removing Shims equally increases the Camber only.  Adding Shims to the Rear increases the Castor only.
Removing Shims from the Rear reduces the Castor only.
Adding Shims to the Front reduces the Castor only.
Removing Shims from the Front increases the Castor only.

Rear Wheel Alignment:

On all the above Models, Rear Wheel Alignment is performed when the Rear Axle is installed in the Car and no Adjustments are possible.
