Is it possible to align the front end yourself or do you need to take it in to have it done? If I have to take it in, who knows how to align FJ40 front ends in Houston, TX?

If it is a DIY project, how do I tackle it? Thanks.

easy diy take a tape measure.  measure across the front of the tires and the back front should be 1/4in less make shure to use the same point on the tire (outside tread edge works good)  half way up. to change turn control rod to shorten or lenghten. good luck rob  (ps if you cant get someone to hold the other ond of the tape just use duct tape)

yes it is real easy. the alignment guys I talked to said to set 1/8" toe in. thats seems to work well. Is 1/4" the toyota setting?
