Ok as said are they meant to be toed in or out.
Mine dances all over the road, measured it and on the rims its 5mm toed out, this is as set from the wheel alignment fella.
And its not just a case of taking it back.

Not really interested in who to take it to and so on , just trying to find out in or out and approx measurment (in mm) if anyone has it.
Cheers.

A bit of toe out might be OK if it was regularly used in 4wd on bitumen but they should normally have a slight amount of toe in. Mine has one degree of toe in and has even tyre wear. If you are just checking this with a tape measure on the front and back of the wheels then the back measurement should be about 2mm bigger than the front. Just make sure there is no slop in your tie rod ends. About 2 degrees to zero toe in is OK on a live axle car but it should only have toe out if it is full time awd.

Cheers,

Easy enough to do/check at home with a string line and tape measure. I gave mine a little neg, worked well with even tyre wear.
