alignment

so i've been meaning to get around to doing an alignment on the front of the jeep. so i'm reading all these write-ups that say something to the effect of draw a chalk line around the center of each front tire and measure between the two lines. then the difference of front measurement to back measurement should be 1/8'' diff. or whatever it is. anyways, i was curious if it would be easier...and possibly more accurate to use the rotors as my measuring points instead of the chalk line around a rough tire. that way there's no squiggly line that i hope is centered and straight. am i confused in thinking this would work?

just some random thoughts i had about the whole process.

Kyle that would work too. I believe you could use 50.5" as a guideline between the tie rod ends. That should give you your 1/8th inch of toe in.

thanks. just seems more accurate than a chalked tire. especially when you need to get it within 1/8''.
