Default Re: Toe-in tools - easy and accurate

For clarification… or in defense… my setup is definitely “shade tree”, no expensive tools, no garage floor, just a reliable way to check toe-in in spite of not-perfect rims or squiggly tread. And I won’t argue anyone’s technique – that’s not what the post is about... it's about a cheap and handy tool.

My guide was Les Andrews’ directions on page 2-19:
jack the front end off the ground
mark across the tire (tread) with chalk
bring marks forward in a horizontal line with the hub cap
measure then rotate tire so chalk marks are behind hub cap
adjust tie rod as needed

Good enough for country roads. :-)
