FS: Solstice/Sky caster gauge

I have a Kent-Moore digital angle gauge for sale. This is the gauge that is needed to get a complete and correct rear alignment on Kappas (for adjusting rear caster). In my experience most alignment shops don't have one of these and therefore can't really do a full alignment on a Kappa. I'm selling my GXP, so I no longer need this gauge.

These are ~$700 new from supply houses, and there are a couple on eBay in the $200 range, but I'll let this one go to a forum member for $120 shipped. I think these are also used on Corvettes, so if you know anyone with a Corvette that is in need send them over as well.

Pics below...

Cheers

No. This is a gauge specifically intended for setting rear caster on a Kappa, some Corvettes, and a few other GM vehicles.

This is a good tool at a very good price. If I didn't already have one .......

Correct, it will work on the Kappa as pictured. It will work on C7 (2014 and newer) Corvettes with a special adapter.

Most of them you find are like new because they are seldom used.

$120 is a good price.
