re: "soft" front end

Thanks for the input guys.
Couple of things; everything is new in the front end. Nothing binding, sticking or bent. Tires, 215/70 15's so that may be some of it.
Toe in is just 1/16, so I can up that a little.
427V8, you threw me there. I know (or think I know) that toe out will make em squirrelly. So I designed it to toe in (if anything) on bump steer.
Splain to me why I want toe OUT on bump steer?

Generally, you all are confirming my gut hunch. It's in the alignment. The shop that did it has been around about 50 years and has those "old guys" that know their stuff. They would have put another 1/2* or so of caster on it if they could, but thought it would be fine with what I had.
Guess it won't hurt to have them recheck it.

Any other idea?
