Setting the toe

I just replaced tie rod nuts and figured I would check the alingment. What is everyone setting there toe at?

Correct! The Service Manual, Sec 8-9 says:


NOTE: All measurements and adjustments must

be made with the vehicle unloaded.


Mark the center-line of the front tires at the front and
rear of the tire; then using a tape measure, measure and
record the distance between the marks at the front and
rear. The front measurement should be 6-12 mm
(1/4-1/2 in.) greater than the rear measurement
(toe-out).

I am with Joe. At least 0 to a 1/8 toe in. If you cycle the suspension you will notice the 2 inches of toe out you get at full compression. I set mine with someone sitting in it so it is set at ride height.
