They are very expensive..
before i got the hudy system i cut me four 4"x 4"x 3/16" lexan blocks,(to put in palce of the wheels) and a good smooth flat 20" x 20" plywood board,a compase,and a rpm camber gauge, so i could set it up and i could do most everything that the hudy system will do it just takes longer. for setting the toe you can measure the front and rear of the wheel and for every 1/16th it will be very close to 1degree. so if you measure the front side of the wheel and it is say 8 1/8" and the rear side was 8" you would have 2 degree's total toe out and would be 1 degree per wheel. hope this helps

The hudy set up station just makes life easy and I am a huge fan of the easy button. Besides why would you want to do it the hard way it just does not make any sense.

lol so true, I love the easy button....... Before I got the set up station I swore I had the set up correct, Id always double check everything to make sure, then after setting it up with the hudy, I was quite a few degrees off...Click the easy button.......
