    Are there any gurus out there who know how to decipher the Vehicle Models in the online 2005/2006 Repair Manual that deals with Front Wheel Alignment for 4WD.

    For example, my tire size is P245/75R16 but I don’t know which spec applies to my vehicle; that is, I don't know how to determine my vehicle model.

    In addition, can someone explain what page SP-12 is attempting to illustrate with regard to turning the cams. It would be nice to know what an alignment tech is up to down there.

    Best thing is to get slightly posative toe, for example; .05*. A little posative camber, .2* (non lifted applications), and about 2.3* Caster. 2.1* is fine for a non lifted truck.

    I finally found my Tacoma's Vehicle Model #. It's located on the label inside the driver's door. In my case it is TRN240L-TRMDKA.

    According to the 05/06 online manual, the Camber should be .58* and the Caster should be 1.73* See: http://i.minus.com/ibfdfStC9eO0IS.png

    According the Chilton, the Camber should be 1.62* and the Caster should be .3* See: http://i.minus.com/irFKi2kTi1Ptq.png

    Who ya gonna believe?
