Since I was "CRS" and backed into the tree stump near the end of the driveway, I replaced the suspension parts I bent. I checked the toe-in the best I can and have about an 1/8" toe-in. Is this normal and will it be all right?

Actually it is 1/16". It is an 1/8" difference from rear of tires to front of tires.

It should be easy to adjust. Run a string down both sides of the wheels. Rear toe on my Ford's is adjustable with a cam located at the point where the lower arm piviots on the cross member. I raced front wheel drive cars at my local short track for many years. I did all of my alianments using homemade tools, and gadgets.

on the luminas there isnt a cam bolt but if you loosen the bolt that holds the rear most of the lower bars that go from the frame to the knuckle at the frame you can pry the in or out to adjust the toe

I did that already. That might be how I went for 1/8" to 1/16".
I think it is good enough for my trip. I don't like the good year tires on it anyway.

I as going to get the spec's for you last week, but we had a bunch of guys in the shop on vacation and we were SLAMMED last week!!!!! My other guy at work was out also [just three of us in parts, me and another counter guy, and a driver] so it was busy. If I went out to ask the guys anything, they would have started throwing tools at me!! :D :D
