See Figures 1 through 39
Toe-in can be measured by either a front end alignment machine or by the following method:
With the front wheels in the straight ahead position, measure the distance between the extreme front and the extreme rear of the front wheels. In other words, measure the distance across the undercarriage of the vehicle between the two front edges and the two rear edges of the two front wheels. Both of these measurements (front and rear of the two wheels) must be taken at an equal distance from the floor and at the approximate centerline of the spindle. The difference between these two distances is the amount that the wheels toe-in or toe-out. The wheels should be always adjusted to toe-in according to specifications.
- Loosen the clamp bolts at each end of the left tie rod, seen from the front of the vehicle. Rotate the connecting rod tube until the correct toe-in is obtained, then tighten the clamp bolts.
- Recheck the toe-in to make sure that no changes occurred when the bolts were tightened.
The clamps should be positioned3/16in. from the end of the rod with the clamp bolts in a vertical position in front of the tube, with the nut down.
