  • Note, DO NOT LOCK THE STEERING WHEEL

  • Right Wheel Flashing

  • Steer to Adjust Position ?On some vehicles the adjustments can not be easily reached with the wheels in the straight ahead Position.

    On these vehicles the system allows the Technician to steer the wheel to a position where the adjustment is more accessible

  • Adjust Right Toe

  • Lightly bounce front suspension from center to relieve stress induced by adjustment

  • Left Wheel Flashing

  • Adjust Left Wheel

  • Lightly bounce front suspension from center to relieve stress induced by adjustment

  • After making all adjustments, steer the left front wheel to the right aprox. 2 degrees and then back to the left until the left and right front toe numbers are equal. Check the position of the steering wheel and fine tune if necessary.

  • When the toe numbers are equal and the steering wheel is straight..The chance of having a crooked steering wheel while driving has been reduced.

    No Technician gets a perfectly straight steering wheel the first time every time.
