I just received a DIY alignment kit in mail today, which is used to check front toe settings. A vendor, "Quick Trick", I purchased from specializes in DIY equipment for checking alignment settings and provides fast shipping via USPS priority mail.

Kit comes with high quality arms and 2 tape measurement, which I fould very easy to set up and use.

I've measured multiple times using the kit and was able to get a delta of 1/8" repeatedly between front and rear of tire, which means my car has a toe-in (explains for uneven tire wear). For a toe-in, tie rod needs to be loosened; for toe-out, tie rod needs to be tightened.

All in all, I highly recommend this kit for those DIYers.

yes, you measure distance between edges of two front tires.
