Measure Each Side


We want to make and adjustment to one side to reduce the toein. But which side? If we pick the wrong side the car could go down the road like a crab.

The last time I adjusted the toein, I cranked in toein to some arbitrary amount on both sides overcoming a natural tendency on my car towards toe out. We will fix the toe out by relaxing some of this. One way is to measure the distance from the wheel and the body.

Here I pick an easily made measurement on both sides and will make the adjustment on the side with the shortest measurement. This is the right side which is about 1 cm shorter.
