I recommend taking the car to a good honest shop its almost imposible to accurately align the wheels after their thrown off. There is no set thread point because you have toe in and toe out that both has to be set correctly or youll just mess up your front end all over again. I no its happend to me befor with a few t-birds.

Let me no what you think.
