    Setting toe...a question/observation

    so, i have a tool for setting toe on the rear wheels. it measures distance between them, front and rear.

    after setting this weekend on 2 different chairs (maintenance weekend) i noticed the flat spots on the tip of the axle sleeve/camber plugs. i had always assumed theses were to get a wrench on them to turn them easily.

    however...on both chairs, when toe is set perfect, this flat spot is 100% perpendicular to the floor. (checked with a carpenters square).

    it seems this is a quicker and easier way to set toe.

    true?

    Absolutely. In fact, although I've seen it in owner's manuals, I've never used the technique that you've tried. Most camber tubes have this flat spot.

    thanks for validating!

    this will really save some time. measuring toe is a pain in the arse, for sure.
