It is hard to check toe in/out, without the equip to do it. I don't know of an easy way to explain, mabe think of your front tires as pidgen toed, or bow leged. The front tires need to be pointed in just enough to pre load the front end to make it more stable. Like 1/16 inch. There is nothing uniform enough on the car to measure from, so you need to paint a line on the center of the tire while rotating the tire, then scribe a thin line in the paint before it dries. The only way to get this measured properly is at center and you can't do this with a tape measure, and this is where you need a toe in gague.
Whew, I sure am glad I kept this simple, this could get long ha ha.
