Re: How to straighten steering wheel w/o getting aligned
Tighten the right side adjusting sleeve, and loosen the left side adjusting sleeve the same amount. Try 1/4 turn at a time. This will alter the steering wheel alignment without changing the toe-in (as long as the sleeves are moved exactly the same distance).
You can actually set your toe-in pretty easily with a toe gauge from JC Whitney. Since that's all you really set of the Ford trucks, it's a ton cheaper than having a shop put it on a computerized apparatus to do a simple setting.
