The reason you might want more or less toe in change as the wheel goes up and down is, you can have less toe OUT down the straight while accelerating, then as you get off the gas, and the car lowers in front, it gets more toe OUT for better turn in. Most cars seem to have some bump OUT or toe OUT change as the suspension compresses, you can fine tune this with washers under either the inner or outer ball stud. Hope this helps!
thanks for your reply..
but sorry... my english is poor.. so i could not understand exactly
when i pressed front suspension...
more washers under outer ball stud -> tire act toe-in
is it right?
1) more washers under outer ball stud -> fast corner-in
2) less washers under outer ball stud -> smooth corner-in
