Question Proper Toe-in for a lifted cart

Once again I'm asking for advice on my newbie 06 CC DS. I just replaced the hubs on both sides and was looking at the cart and thought the tires looked toed-in more then they should. I was reading past posts the last few nights, and I thought I remember the magic number being 1/8 inch.

When I measured the toe-in on this cart it's dead smack exact 3/4 inch on both sides. So the question I have is I'm guessing someone set this up on purpose, and should it really be that much? Does it have something to do with having a lift kit on it? It really doesn't look that odd to me, and drives fairly nice, but does wander some.

Looks like you have more issues with camber than toe. To me it looks like the toe is more out then in from the picture you have posted. 3/4" is pretty significant and would cause issues no doubt.

When you came up with 3/4" inches what is the procedure you used to come up with that number?

Used my carpenter square on the cement floor and measured the distance from the top of the tire to the square.

BTW what do you see that makes you think camber is also an issue ?

Reason I'm asking is that I've never heard of anyone setting toe with a framing square.

I stand corrected.

I guess my question should really be camber not toe in. That 3/4 inch is the camber. So what I'm really asking then is 3/4 inch appropriate?

I'll measure toe in tomorrow and figure out where I'm at in that world.

Thanks for the correction.
