Run the string horizontal at steering outer ball joint height to where it crosses a direct line between upper and lower ball joints (the steering axis).

But like others here have already said, unless you are mixing parts or doing something really radical, whatever the factory put into it is probably fine.

Of all the suspension geometry possibilities, Ackerman is probably the least important of all.
