Well I did read that post that took it into degrees, but not having a full understanding of these things, hence the post, and the guy asking for it in metric, I just assumed that it would be a fraction in mm\'s


so reading the above chart:


Toe measurement 1/16 inch or 0.0625 inch = Toe angle 8.95251minutes

then using my friend google to do the math:
0.0625 inches = 1.5875 millimetres

Chaps!  Just been along to a laser alignment garage to get the wheels facing in the right direction after a massive rebuild of the suspension on my FD. Told the very helpful chappie that I would like 1/16th toe in on the front, he asked what is that in metric? Doh! like I know.
 
Anyone on here give me a conversion please.


That would put me off using the place - there are so many alignment places that employ monkeys....:rolleyes:

yes I agree with you, all I need is all the wheels facing in the right direction so that I can then drive it to a place that will corner weight it, and set up the camber etc ready for the track.

Anyone know what is the maximum amount of negative front camber you can get without major mods?

When I went to get mine aligned, I had -4 up front just from lowering it (albeit quite far)
