Front End Alignment

When I de-cranked my t-bars it threw the passanger side out and was wondering how could I fix it without payin 50 bucks that i dont have to take it to a shop.

Yokohama geolander m/ts.....de-cranked 5-6 turns....I'm pretty sure that it did not have that much positive camber before I lowered it.

Honest answer.. You CAN'T. You might get things close to where theres no pull left or right in the steering.

If visually it looks off or if you feel it when you drive.. Its best to spend the 50$ for an alignment then hundreds for new tires.
