    toe out

    I recently ran into a garbage can to avoid someone trying to run over my merv and broke a suspension arm so i got some aluminum ones and now my wheels are pointing outward. In the front the left is more than the right. I have tried messing with the pivot balls but are not doing anything to help

    keep adjusting them, without aftermarket rods there is no way to adjust it except for the pillow balls

    If you have too much toe out, both of the the pillows are too far out.
    If the top of the tire is too far in, the top pillow needs to go out and the bottom one needs to go in.

    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    I've tried to adjust the pillows everyway I could but nothing. Is it best to upgrade toe links when you upgrade your suspension arms, seeing as how my tires were fine with the plastic arms.

    How severe is the toe out?
    I am starting to wonder if you even got the right arms or if they were made wrong.

    I figurd that out a little late $15 vs $65 and the rpm ones are stonger. I'll remember that next time. I just ordered titanium adjustable turnbuckle and pushrod set so I hope I can fix it once they arrive. Really missing the merv
