whats a good method to set up toe at home. trying to come up with a fixture to bolt to my wheels but so far i have no accurate way to do so. also would you measure toe from 15" or at the tire diameter which is 28"?

thanks, joel

2 blocks of wood(2x4 or 4x4)about 6 inches long,two pieces of square tube,angle or flat stock(just has to be a good straight edge) about 24"-30" long,tape measure and a friend.Place the wood next to the tire and the straight edges on top of that(spaces the straight edge off the floor and above the bulge of the tire,hold the straight edges against the tire and measure.Be sure the raised lettering is not where you are holding the straight edges.Been doing it this way for a long time and never had a problem @220+

Same way we do them too. Just be sure that the chassis is settled when you do it. Don't set the front end down off of jack stands and decide to check it. Pull it outta the garage and bring it straight back in, settling the chassis and straightening the wheels. And after adjustments are made, move the car again to allow everything to settle. If you adjust it and don't move it, you'll end up moving it more than you want. Just move it in and out of garage, or back and forth a few times before settling on a particular adjustment.
