    measure front of the tire, meausure back of the tire. I did this morning, more like 1/2" toe in. I will be able to adjust later this morning. I'll keep u up to date. Thanks for the great input!
    Tip- Make sure your straightedge is wide enough to sit on the same spots of the tire on each side so that you get an accurate measurement. You can also put a mark on straightedge at same distance from wheel centerline and measure the distance from the frame to adjust them straight. After getting them straight, check your steering wheel to see if it is aligned, then set toe-in. Oh yeh and do all this with the tires on the ground not jacked up. A piece of cardboard under tires on rough concrete helps them move when adjusting as well as rocking it a little.

    Kapper, One other thing that I forgot to mention and no one else has either. Every time you make an adjustment to your tie-rods roll the machine forward or backwards several feet (15-20 ft. is sufficient) or just drive it a short distance, otherwise you won't be getting true measurements when you remeasure. The toe-in/tires needs to go to their relaxed state without the forces of the tire's rubber being moved laterally against the ground. If you measure the toe-in, adjust, and never roll the machine, and remeasure, you may think you've adjusted the toe-in the correct amount but you will probably find that you adjusted it way to much after the tires have rolled a few feet.

    This is why I mentioned in my previous post that 1/4 turn of both tie-rods changes the measured distance of the center-line of the tires about 3/16 of an inch. Very small amounts of adjusting the tie-rods causes a lot of change in the center-line measurement of the tires when your trying to achieve a measurement within 1/8 of an inch. That is why the spec. for the toe-in is a range of, if I remember correctly off the top of my head, 1/8"-3/8" of toe-in.

    I pulled the fronts in a full turn and a quarter. Made up about 3/4" I rolled back and forth, and have about 1/16" toe in. LOL.
    I'll take out for a ride this evening. Thanks for all. Hope that takes care of it, and didn't ruin any bearings cause of this.

    Kapper, if your wondering why your pics are upside down, you took them that way. You need to have the bottom of your phone (home button on iPhone) to the right side for an upright rectangular pic (held horizontally). If you phone is held vertically (normal phone use) your pics will be sideways on a computer, held with bottom to the left your pics will be upside down. I hope 100's read this post!
