I got the steering wheel almost perfectly straight now and my toe was out slightly. I have it almost perfect, maybe pointed ever so slightly in now. Toe in is better than toe out if it's not perfect.
You do realize that TYC produces 70% of the factory headlights and tail lights out there.. Toyota... Mopar... Some GM ... Mazda... Nissan.. Not in all models.. But all these companies use tyc housings

That's probably why they're pretty decent quality then.
