I own an XR6 AU2, stock as a rock, no aim to take it to the track.

recent alignment readings shows my toe on the rear wheels is LH 0.2, RH -1.3, according to to the users manual acceptable toe is between 1 and 3 mm. how do they adjust the toe on the rear, is it possible is it important?

thanks from paceo

do you have live axle or IRS rear end?

Live axle there's nothing you can do to adjust it

IRS you have track rods on the backside of the IRS cradle, and can be adjusted, sounds like the wheel alignment blokes lazy.

For track purposes you can run a bead of weld around half the axle tube and as it cools it will shrink and change the toe. Alot of guys do it to gain 0.5 camber on solid axle cars.
