lbrauer is starting off with a positive reputation.
I hear you Axracer on the terminology of things. Some times it is hard for me to understand what you smart guys and girls are trying to say. I understand now what you are talking about. Right now I have a difference of 1/8" is that going to be enough or should I go further than that like a 1/4".
thanks as always for all your information and help.

It's not a matter of smarter-less smart, but of more experience-less experience. My correcting your terminology is to help others understand better and to provide a better answer, not to make anyone look or feel "dumb". To me the only dumb question (or person) is the one you have and DON'T ask!

If the entire front suspension and steering is good and tight, 1/8" toe-in is probably enough. If the truck still wanders, try a little more, 1/4" is not excessive unless you are doing a LOT of driving, then the tires may wear a little quicker.

Yep, EVERYONE started out knowing nothing! From there, if you are going to learn something, it's always nice to learn it right!

Good comments Ax and Julie, that's the way to learn. If you don't know...ask. At least this is what our teachers and instructors always said.
