Default Toe-in help!

Is it possible to get the rear toe-in out back to around zero? New to these trucks.

Toe for the rear is adjusted by the block inserts or pills. The Rear Rear block adjusts your toe normally the standard is between 2.5-3.5 pending on kit.

Running no toe will make the car very unstable you will have a hard time tracking why 0 maybe your coming off on road with tons of traction?

For future reference, it might be wise to specify the EXACT kit you're asking for help with. I.E., Associated 90004 or SC10 4x4 for this particular question.

If my assumption on this being the SC10, then it uses an hingepin type setup so your two options of zero-toe are either rear hubs or rear arm mounts. It would seem that this truck uses the arm mounts to set rear toe.

I'm not that familiar with Associated products so I don't know what the numbers mean but STRC offers a 3-2 arm mount, a 3-3 arm mount as well as an unlisted arm mount for adjustability. There are probably other manufacturers that have more options to give you zero-toe.

Hope this helps.
