Question how to align the front wheels

i have heard about using a string to align the ft wheels, whats the best way? i seem to have 1 tire wearing a little funny but it drives straight down the road. i would like to check the alignment, do i need the wheels off the ground? and how thanks i also heard about using a level. my tie rods are straight and nothing is bent.

You can just use a tape measure if you like. I put a couple of people in mine and then measure from inside of one wheel to the other in the front and in the back of the front wheels. I just put 1/8 toe in and works great for me.

Take your shock off and cycle the suspension and see if you really want to set it at 1/4 toe out. Bet you change your mind.

Would agree. Especially on the hard stuff or asphalt. And it really works better as the suspension cycles.
