F350 4WD Toe In Spec?

I have done numerous searches and for some reason, can't find the 94 F350 4WD toe in spec. I set mine around and eighth and would like to verify this?
Thanks

The service manual for my '97 shows .06 degrees in.

Thanks for that, I just need to figure out how to convert .06 degrees in. to inches or millimeters.

I'm pretty sure when I rebuilt the solid axle in my '80, I set the toe to 1/8" and never touched it again...and that was close to 20 years ago! No tire wear issues with 35" AT's.

OK, so I go out to the shop to look in a factory Ford shop manual I have for a '90 F-series truck. Look up specs for F-350 4x4 monobeam and it says: +0.3 deg positive (inward) to -0.2 deg neg (outward). I take that as +0.1 deg as the nominal "Ford" spec. This is with stock tires. So, I would think if the truck is on an alignment machine, these specs (in degrees) would stay the same with any tire size. But if you are using a tape measure, and measuring in inches, toe-in specs will be different with smaller/bigger tires.

I still say, you can't go wrong with 1/8". Good luck.
