Quick question for you guys,

when getting the front wheels aligned, does the jimny need to have a small toe-in, or a small toe-out like a defender.  (No hokey cokey jokes please )

The internet says 2-6mm toe in.

thanks Scimike,

The internet has spoken.  I was just going through some older jimny posts and found this.  

jimny toe in

I think I'll take it somewhere with a fancy machine that does tracking.

From the FSM

As a general rule, rear wheel drive vehicles are set up with toe-in, front wheel drive vehicles with toe-out - the Jimny although 4WD, spends most of it's life in RWD.
