Just had my tracking done - yeah should be toeing in 1-30 as I recall. Mine was toeing OUT after the missus decided to do a U-turn in a road that wasn't wide enough :eek: :confused: Hit and mounted the kerb at 25 mpg. You can guess my reaction.

Get it adjusted soon as tyres are expensive and you can't afford to waste tread.

King-pin inclination, its the angle at which is sits, but the ZR's don't have a king pin. Also it isn't adjustable as well as the castor as its part of the suspension set up, unless you go for coil overs and adjustable top mounts
