Bump Steer

I set ride height, then toe with Dunlop gauges, then chase my tail with bump steer.

I do/did it the hard way--use the Dunlop Optical Gauges to check the bump steer!
Allow a considerable amount of time for this-although it is accurate...

Same process. Horizontal lower wishbones, correct toe, camber and caster. I use string for toe
