So basically you want it at 0.15 degrees.

Still wondering if its bad to go lower than .15....???


and after installing a suspension kit, the toe change will depend on wether or not you took out the inner bolt of the lower control arm. If you didnt, then it should change a bit, but will definitely go out of spec. If you did take it out, who knows how far off it is... Mine was at -.8/-1.11 degrees in the rear, - meaning toe out.
