Toeing Out?

    I just installed my MM 1, 7.5 RD plow on my 1994 F150 4X4 and I'm noticing a slight toeing out or canting out. When I raise the plow, the front end barely moves, if at all, downward so am not sure what the issue is. To my recollection, the wheels appeared more straight, in-line than now. Is this normal or what is the problem?

    welcom to the crappy design ttb steering system.

    thay were so bad over the years the offroad companys for lift kits comeout with a better system.

    but its the nature of the design to act like this with more weight or wheel travle.

    Is it OK to drive and what should I do or install to correct the problem?

    you should have between 1/8"-3/16" toe in without the plow on it. if you have that set right and still have excessive toe in with the plow on, more than say 1/4"-5/16" then dont drive it with the plow on unless you are plowing.
