camber, caster, & toe

This was an ASE test question and its killing me. I dont know the answer & cant find it in any of my books either.

During a front end alignment when adjusting toe:

A)done first
B)done after camber
C)done before caster
D)done last


I said "D) done last" but thats just a SWAG.
Could someone tell me the correct answer?

thanks
Greg

Greg, like Red said, do the toe setting last. The REASON for this is because any adjustments done for Caster and Camber will change the upper ball stud position which affects the toe setting. Get everything set correctly before checking and setting toe.
