As for your cams leaning to the left , some of that is normal on a bow with a cable slide rod, as long as the string isn't trying to climb out of the string grove of the cam. They should be pretty straight, but thats difficult on a short a2a bow like your 32.5 A2A bow, thats an acute angle that the cables are being pulled to, gets even steeper as you come to full draw, and for that reason it is hard to eliminate all of the lean. But if it is excesive, add a few twist to the right side of the cable yoke, top and bottom, just try to keep the string in the middle of the grove.

    Rather than highjack this thread, it might be best if you'd start a new thead and give us a better description of whats going on with your S3, as I said in my reply to your pm, Put this problem out where all the board will read it. Every one here will try to get your bow correctly adjusted.
