110 Toe in specs

Anyone know the alignment specs for the 110?
I am heading to an alignment ship this afternoon and forgot to bring the Rover workshop manual.

Don't remember if it was dead ahead, or 1/2 a degree toe in or out?
Anyone?

definitely in not out. But I found that each truck reacts differently to adjustment. Why pay an alignment shop?


Only real adjustment is toe.

Shocker, my truck didn't do well with toe out but probably not as tight as stock configuration

Normally cars use a toe out setting if the steering wheels are driven. The idea is that normally they are being powered. The power forces a bit of toe in and you are trying to get them to be more or less straight the majority of the time.

Cars with non-driven steering axles spec a bit of toe in as them are normally being pushed back a bit forcing a bit of toe out.

Makes sense.

In my experience, if everything else is proper, the toe can be way, way out and you won't notice. The two biggest problems people have is not enough (or none) swivel preload or not enough castor.

I have them put the 90 in as a 97 since they will have that in their US-based computer system.

(95 or 94 will work too)

You could have them do it as a 93 but the specs are probably the same 110/90

Its worth doing just to make sure everything is within spec. I've only had to do it twice in all my years of LR'ing, usually just set the arms the same length.
