Looking for alignment advice

Hey All,

I've done a 5 lug / 4 wheel disc conversion. So on a Fox we have 94/95 hubs / spindles. I notice this thing has a TON of toe in right now. So I'll eyeball it up to look straight, and then take it over to the shop to have it aligned.

This car is going to do a few autox events this year but is otherwise a weekend toy.

Any advice on how I should have them setup the front? I'm pretty green to alignments, so please dumb it down a bit

Also to note, the rest of the suspension is STOCK. So no castor / camber plates or anything like that.

#1 I dont think you'll be able to align without CC plates.

You should look into a bumpsteer kit. For a Fox the 96+ spindles are a wee bit better (less stack height), but since you already have the 95's stay with those.
(Notice photo #15 versus #28)

Here are some photos of my install:

Doesn't the 96+ spindles push tires out a bit more?

It's only 8mm, but I can visually tell the front track is wider on my car (stock fox length in the rear still).
