    or just buy the DW rack spacers

    i have the opposite problem to you.

    running standard knuckles and DW spacers.

    both my wheels toe in - i need to cut my rods down or use z32 ones.

    You need to put it on the floor to see actually how much lock you've got, it will go over centre when drifting :)

    I tell you right now, the only reason you've got so much lock is because the trailing wheel isn't going anywere, it will work, and you may like it.. but at low speeds it will spin you round.

    It will turn in amazing tho haha.

    before changing it, have you tested it?

    what works for clarkly might not work for you and visa versa.

    too me i think your wheels look spot on, both heading same direction etc.

    but i dont quite understand how changing the hubs works so.....go figure.

    but test it before you chuck it.
