i dont know how to adjust toe, but ill say this, get it done asap..bad toe will rub your tires so bad they will be bald after a few thousand miles of driving..

its well worth the 100-200 dollars to get toe corrected. considering tires for our car run 400 at least.

thanx owAce, F !!! i guess i just have to get another alignment. What could possibly the reason my alignment is out of spec. after having an alignment done only a month ago? I sometimes hit small bumps, and dips is that enough to throw my alignment out of spec.??
My car is lowered on tein basic and is set on NO gaps F/R.

if your last alignment was in perfect spec, what i would do is check up on your coils and check that the sleeve is locked down and hasnt moved at all.

what i would do is take it to a shop to have it looked at, see if they find anything wrong with it. hitting small bumps and stuff shouldnt mess it up that much.

whats the position of your steering wheel? i remember lil tane had a similar problem after getting htechs, also pm peteriap he seems to know a lot about camber kits, and may also be able to help you out with toe problems.

check your coils locking mech. then if you had it done at a shop, did it have a warranty? Maybe you can try that?

Didnt you say you didnt have the problem until you installed the TL wheels? That's likely the cause. Swap back to ur stock or watever you had before and see if problem is still there. Try retorquing the wheels or it could be a tire pull problem.

FYI, the NTB stores here (Houston, TX) are doing a think where you can buy alignment packages in years, like 1, 2, 3 years worth of unlimited alignments, for $xxx. I bought a one year, and I forget how much it was, but it was less than the cost of two alignments at the regular price. So far I've been in like 4 times, damn those potholes.
