    Been doing the negative camber rear end trick for the last 30 or so years with not one bearing problem to date. If you bend the housing at or near the bearing, it will eat bearings all day long. You MUST bend the houseing as close to the center as you can. This way the bearings will never know the difference. There's plenty of play in the spider gears to allow this legal (???) mod. 2deg max please. Works for me.

    For those that are running toe out to help with the turn in, are you also running turn in spacers with a revised ackerman or is this in place of doing that. I have never tried running toe out but I am assuming what makes the turn in better is the inside wheel being turned more.
    Trying to learn, thanks.

    Scott, with poly tc rod bushings then it would be 0 to 1/16 out. More than that and you'll start scrubbing speed that we don't have down the straights!

    ***I'm sorry David, refresh my memory, how did you adjust your rear toe?***

    Jake:

    I know NONE of you folks in the North East do anything that is not spelled out in the ITAC.

    You could ask your GOOD your parts pedler friend in Ohio.

    As a matter one poster told all within this thread the LONG method, one told you the QUICK method & one told all that he has done it forever.

    Push your selective recall memory button & you will recall the my method is between the LONG method & the QUICK method.

    I could tell you again but then you would tell me AGAIN it's illegal.

    Have Fun ; )

    I'm curious to know the answer to this as well. Is it one or the other? I have a set of poly's coming in for the LCA and tension rods. My caster was pretty messed up after the CMP-kink run off and the front just feels sloppy now.

    I run 1/8" toe in. if you have any toe out it is a handful under braking. I am told you need a little more toe in if you have the stock rubber bushings on the front tension rods. [/b]


    Is that total toe or per side?

    My suggestion is to start at 0 to 1/16" out.
