    is .6 toe in horrible? would that cause a violent shaking in the steering wheel and car at 70mph? I know about out of balance wheels and bent rims and blah blah blah, i just want to know the answer to the question above. Thanks. :D

    look up your spec on the alignment equpment if its computerized or maybe check on-demend or all-data. Toe doesn't real cause shacking either, if both are toed in or out then it will just wander bad and wear tires.

    ok seriously there are a lot more factors in it... basically when you align a car all of the things starting out have to be in alignment... if the outside diameter of your tire is different the whole machine will be off... if you have lowered the car youre pretty much screwed anyway... but to answer the question will the toes cause the shaking... NO! plain and simple it will just eat the fuck out of your tires

    the violent shake in the wheel is either worn out bushings, bad tires, or wheel bearings
