Laser alignment

I got home late but still found a little time it use my laser and do a cursory alignment. I then dropped all the lines to the floor with the laser, including a center line from ball joint to ball joint. I then turned the rack hard to the right, jacked up the drivers side assembly and lowered the passengers to simulate hard cornering and dropped the lines to the floor again. Then I did the same for the other direction.
I now have a mess of lines drawn on the floor of the garage. I will get out my protractor tomorrow and transfer the whole mess to cad so I can check my Ackerman angle and attempt to calculate whether I will need to adjust anything. This is all a great learning experience for me and I hope I don't have to go too far backwards after tomorrow!!
