1997 Intrepid wheel alignment specifications?

Hi All!

I have just did my outer rods replacement and now I need to do wheel alignment ASAP! There is no way to drive that car now! ;) You don't have any control of a steering wheel. Now, I am living in Poland and to do wheel alignment I need to know the exact specifications for that ( I guess length, tighness or whatever...) Do you know those specs?

Thank you and best regards,

Miro

New tie rods will only affect toe. Toe is easy to check at home.

Measure from the center of your tread to the center of the tread in front of the tires.
Repeat at the rear and compare numbers.

Bigger number in the front equals toe out. You want 1/8 - 1/4" toe in.

Don't forget to clock your tie rod ends.

Everything done at normal ride height.

jfsram - I am fairly certain that our cars are supposed to be toed out. In the specification chart from the link I provided above, the 'P' after the toe setting value stands for positive, which I think means toe out.

A toe out condition provides straight line driving stability.
