I need to align my '97 XJ and know how, but can't remember the measurements for the front end. Can anyone help me out, it vibes pretty bad at 60mph. Thanks.

so...i am confused...hopefully someone can help me..bear w/me im a lil ill-literate...ok so i just replaced my drag-link..and the pitman arm tie-rod end, and now it appears that my front tires and both pointing outwards the slightest bit....and i am afraid that it will wear my tires faster...which i cant afford lol...and in this write-up i read about setting your toe-in..but i wasn't sure if that meant your tires leaning in or out...or POINTING out..like mine are....so...thanks for any help i really appreciate it!

stand up.
look down at your feet.
point your toes in.
now picture that with your front tires.

seems simple now, eh? toe-in is having the distance between the front of the left and right tire smaller than the distance between the back of the left and right tire. press on with what it says in that write-up and you'll be fine.

Yes...and to picture toe out, point your toes out like a penguin.
