    You have the right setup. I've always had no toe in/out in the front, but depending on the truck I have a 1-3 degree toe in for the rear. If you have a gauge, set it to 2 degrees, that should be the best for you.

    For straight line stability I think both front and rear should have 1-2 degrees toe in

    I bought a RPM Monster Camber Gauge. They give instructions on their website telling you how to use it to set both camber and toe angles. Well worth the $12 cost. Saves you lots of time and guessing.

    Yep that is what RPM recommends. A picture is worth a 1000 words on this one...

    Cant imagine how that could be unless the board is not making contact with both tires or you have a lot of slop in the steering system or knuckles. If there is a lot of slop it is really hard to get an accurate reading on the gauge.
