Your tie rods look too angled. You will get a lot of toe out at bump. I'd address this before doing an alignment.

Ok. Another go at it. I adjusted the rods. If this is still toe out. Let me know if I need to make the tie rods longer or shorter. I awesome shorter. I did that. And they are equal on both sides.

I like the PS side the DS is ok. It looks better than before. I ended up resetting everything as per the instructions and started over.

You may have the static toe correct, but with your present geometry, you will have pretty severe toe out at bump. The tie rods need to be approximately horizontal.To do this you need to raise the tie rods at the wheel end.

bump steer

found this article w/ a good diagram to describe preferred geometry for alignment

in your head-on pic, i see a jack under the front end. is the car lifted at all in that pic, or resting on the ground? that would affect the geometry of the outer tie rods that we can see in the pic.

I don't see anything out of the ordinary. You need to adjust the ride height, approximately 3 3/4" front 4" rear and have the alignment done before worrying about bump steer. You can't tell just by looking at the tie rods.

Thank you. Yes knew all that goes hand and hand including the driveshaft angle.

I will take care of it as soon as possible.

Thank you
