Well, took it for test drive #3 today. Steering was still walking a little. Went ahead and measured. Was told by someone very familiar with the Jalpa and Countach that the toe should be 1/8" IN. I'm nearly half an inch OUT, which explains a lot. Soaking the nuts for the tie rod adjustment and will fix it in the morning. Easy fix, but that means it's nearly 3/4" off total, that's nuts. Mind you the front suspension wasn't apart the entire time I did this, so it isn't like something went out of whack from putting it together, it came that way.

EIther way will fix and remeasure in the morning.

Alright, got my alignment pretty damn well eyeballed. I started with 1/4-1/2" toe out (could actually fit a finger width on the back measurement).

I fought the nuts off of the old union after... a lot of fighting. I'm baffled how in the hell anyone drove that thing so poorly aligned. Anyway, it's now at a happy 1/8" toe in. I'll have it brought in for a professional alignment though at some point, but that should solve my steering walking issue of it going all over the damn place. Soon as I'd get on the throttle it'd walk a bit here and there and I thought, "ok yeah that feels like toe out."

My trackday project did that when I first swapped suspension, and it was the same thing. Though I haven't taken the suspension apart in the front on the Jalpa, which is why I was confused. Part of me wonders if the previous owner had someone just put it back together and that stuff was apart at some point, or someone dabbled with it, or put new parts on it and never aligned them. Who knows.

Either way, much better now.

Toe out before, geeeeeez


Toe in now on both sides

I love the “skinny” bull on the hood badge. I have those on my SE30, love them. They were Murcia bulls originally correct?
