does anyone here do their own alignment? I've installed cam bolts on my steering knuckle so i can change camber without using a special tool.i also have a Longacre caster/camber gauge to fine tune.i plan on using the string method to measure toe. does anyone have a preferred method?

Measuring wheel front/rear for toe works. It's easier using a pair of aluminum plates, either homemade or buy something like this:

For common steering and toe alignment, I just pay the $60 and let Sears do it on the lift.

I am thinking of getting a pair of those too. I did my alignment last night. It came out pretty good using the string method,but i ididnt lock the steering wheel,so while the wheels are pinting straight ahead,the steering wheel is a little cockeyed.have to redo today......



it works..
