Default Front end alignment 2006 Club Car DS

I have searched the forums and have come up with bits and pieces of "how to align the front end" on various carts but none makes it clear enough for this mechanical sub-genius. I just lifted the cart and I need to adjust the toe in but am not quite sure how. Can someone give me step by step of what I turn which way to adjust it? I gather I need it straight ahead OR about 1/8" toe in. The lift is an All Sports A-Arm.

I'm not familiar with the All Sports lift but toe in is adjusted by rotating the tie rod. Don't remember which direction results in toe-in or toe-out. Just loosen the lock nuts on each end and rotate until toe-in is ~1/4".

By George, I think I got it! Still not sure about the camber that the instructions on the lift say to do but the toe in is right by my measurements. It was over an inch toed in when I started. Thanks Kneddor.

Camber setting is to your liking.

Iahve an ALLSPORTS lift and here is what I did....I set my camber with a framing square and made it as close to perfectly straight upand down as the eye could see laying a framing square against the tire. It took some time popping the spindle on and off to spin the adjusters, but I have the wheels camber basically at "0" and toed it in about 1/8 to 1/4 inch measuring across the tires tread at the 3 and 9 o'clock positions. Set up like this, I am very happy with the handling charactersitics at 25-27 MPH. good luck If we were going 90 down a racetrack, some caster and camber adjustment to the 1/10th degree might be critical, but remember this is a golf cart only going in the 25 mph range, a liitle variation is OK.

Thanks, Oxford. I think I've got it now. I emailed Allsports and they sent back basically the same information. It is pretty well right now. Very happy with it. I appreciate everyone's responses.
