1/5 of a deg or 12 minutes.

My bad. I was thinking .2 of an inch not a degree.

think I got it figured out! what I have is called bump steer,the rack was lowered by 1-2 inches to clear the oil pan so I have to lower the tie rods to spindle mount the same amount. just have to figure out what adjustable bump steer kit to get.

Assuming 27 inch tall tire X 3.14 (pi) =84.78 inch circumference circle divided by 360 degrees = .235" (almost 1/4 inch) at tire OD for a FULL degree, divided by 5 for .2 tenths = .047" toe or .2 degree. That is on a single tire, double it up for total. Or half it if the number was total toe.

ALL cars pretty much have some small amount of bumpsteer, the front end attachment points are calculated to minimize that, once you change them you can make car absolutely undriveable... ....
