OK, Now  if the ackerman is not correct after you measure it, what will 
you change  to make it correct?

Hi Doug
For Ackerman to be correct, the angle of the steering arm in relation to  the 
centerline of the wheel/tire needs to be proper. If you draw a straight line  
from the king pin/center spindle through the steering arm heim/tie rod end 
pivot  it should intersect at the center of the rear axle.
If it doesn't intersect in the middle, change the steering arm angle to the  
wheel centerline until it does.
Changing the length of the steering arm only changes the turn radius and  
steering ratio and has no effect on Ackerman.
