Ack. Drag link adjust question. In the garage...

When I'm going straight my wheel is turned slightly left. Which means at center I'm driving slightly right.

Does anyone know FOR SURE which way to go? I've been setting the toe on my new tie rods for a couple hours now and I've got them set but because the last guy didn't realign the wheel when he was done doing whatever he did I'm gonna fix it. I just can't decide whether I should go out or in with the drag link!

I'm thinking "in" a turn.

Put a piece of tape at the top dead center of your wheel, unlock the wheel, turn the drag link, if the wheel turns the wrong way, turn the drag link the other way until tape on wheel is where it needs to be to center the wheel.
