I agree with the above. Don't over think the Ackerman. If you watch a Ford F100 pull into a parking spot the front wheels will squall the Ackerman is so far off. Did you ever have a parts man ask if a front suspension part was for a short or long wheelbase? Consider that the Ackerman only applies when the wheels are turned sharply. That is not much of the time or much of the distance those tires are going to roll. IMHO
