Set up the laser at the rear of the vehicle at mid tire height, about 12"-18" behind the rear tire.
Ensure the laser is level.
Set the laser so the distance away from the rear tire is the exactly the same when measured at the 9 and 3 O'clock positions. ( I set it at 1" away using a solid steel ruler)
Then starting with the passenger side front tire, measure the laser distance away again at the 9 and 3 O'clock positions. (You should be looking for about 1/16" to 1/8" toe in on the front measurement. Adjust the steering wheel to get the desired measurement)
Then move the laser to the driver side and set up the same way.
Measure the front tire the same as the passenger side. Adjust the tie rod to get the desired measurement.
Once the tie rod is set, then adjust the drag link to center the steering wheel.
Done.

Thanks. Good to know. I do not have a laser so I will not be doing it at this time.
