    While hotrodders have been doing their own front end alignments for years, it does require some specific skills and tools. You will need a shop or repair manual, caster/camber gauge and toe gauge to do the job right. The simplest of these gauges can be bought for about $70 for both and the repair manual for about $30. It can't be done with just a tape measure. If you have specific bad parts such as tie rods, an alignment wont make much of a difference and you will have to realign the car when you change the parts anyway.
