Step 2: Setup Alignment Equipment

01.27

00:00 - Step 2 is all about setting up our string system to give us a way of measuring the toe.
00:04 Here in this case I'm using a set of frames and strings from BG Racing.
00:08 But you know from the course that you can make something yourself much cheaper if you prefer and still get great results.
00:14 First thing is to fit the frames to both ends of the car.
00:17 We can use the different adjusters so that the frames are sitting securely and square to the car.
00:23 Set the bar mounts roughly at the wheel centreline height to start with.
00:26 Now we can assemble the bars and fit them to the frames.
00:30 Roughly centre the bars to the centreline of the car by eye.
00:33 Check the bar heights relative to the wheel centrelines as well.
00:37 Now we're ready to fit the strings.
00:39 The only thing to take care of here is that you make sure that you use the same bar slots on each bar.
00:44 You'll also want to use the slots that keep the strings as close as practical to the wheels without them getting in the way.
00:51 Now we can go ahead and start aligning the strings to the centreline of the car.
00:55 We're going to use the centre of each hub as our reference point.
00:59 On the front, this is the CV ends and on the rear, this is the wheel bearing cap.
01:04 From here, we're just making iterative adjustments to the bar positions to centre the strings.
01:09 Starting at the front to get them pretty close, then moving to the back and doing the same.
01:14 After a few iterations, you'll have the strings set where you need them to be.
