they are right from the looks of that printout everything is ok.. not perfect but ok.. you generally want about the camber .5 degrees higher on the left than on the right be cause of the road crown. and -0.5 degree cross caster..with .14 degrees of total toe.. the trust angle is alittle high but still should be ok.... but by that print out it should drive straight! I would say its a problem with the tires!

let me chime in. looks to me from your print out that the rear toe is off. there is no way to adjust it (i know a way). your rear axle housing may be bent or missaligned on the spring perches. i know mine is but i'm to lasy to work on my own truck and i know how the rear axle shifted (stuck last summer up north). my rear tires are chopping on the inside edges and i set the front twice a month ago and it still pulls a tad to the left.. iM sure "you guys" will argue with me about this and PM eachother saying i dont know what i am talking about, dont matter .

good luck

that is true .... the total toe on the rear of his is good.if it was bent the total toe wouldnt be 0. plus there is .25 degree tolerance for total toe on the rear of rangers...so the housing is not bent but it is shifted alittle.. it may cause a pull to the left but i've seen much worse not pull...

i would say it would dog track and cause the steering wheel to be off (not streight) but not wonder, occording to the readings. so sawp the wheels around (front to back works) if it pulls to the right now, and after you swap them it pulls to the left its your tires...

wondering could also be caused by poor tie rod ends or even a loose rack and pinion

hope you figure it out
