Thrust angle adjustment:

Maybe this can help some folks, which have a problem finding reputable alignment shops. Here’s my method of checking ‘thrust angle’. My ’08 Z is .141° to the left. Can easily calculate thrust angle, by comparing both sides. The rear toe adjusting rods are very sensitive; so very little turning is required. The level and tripod are available at ‘Harbor Freight’, in a turret kit. (Hopefully, I’m not advertising here)

Target card with ¼ inch lines, and duplicated on other side. . The black tape helps the red dot definition, by reducing the light ‘scatter’. Each 1/8-inch is .068°, on a C6Z.


Laser level, with standoffs of aluminum angle epoxied


Laser level at rear wheel.


Target mounted on tripod, with ‘C’ clamp.
