  • Stop the engine.
  • Measure the distance between the tires at the height of the hub in front of the axle.
  • Write down the measurement and mark the tires.
  • Back the tractor approximately 1 m so that the mark is flush with the hub behind the axle.
  • Again, measure the distance between the tires at the same point on the tire.
  • Record the measurement. Determine the difference between the front and rear measurements.
  • If the forward measurement is less, the toe is within.
  • If the rear measurement is less, the toe is out. The distance in front of the tires should be 0-2mm for the DANA front axle. Adjust toe if necessary.
  • Toe-in value (DANA front axle) – 0-2 mm

Adjust Toe-In
