5 gallon buckets and string work good if you don't have a straight edge that long. Most 2wd quads you can measure center to center front and back of front tires and get it close pretty quick.

My way , it runs true . Just incase the chassis maybe tweeked. I used use the front -back front wheel method but the 450r would get twitchy and would run with one wheel straight and one wheel toeing in alot. This method matches the front and rear to run straight. Also I strap the bars to the rear bumper. The stem can turn , when you adjust the tie rods. I adjust the toe alot for differant styles of racing and this is the quickest and a accurate way without using lasers.
Also the straight edge is a 6' spirit level , you can get them at most hardware stores and they don't cost alot. Just check there straight before you buy them. :D
That's why you use the string.:tup: Else you could be driving around crabbed up like you said.

Here, this will help u understand what I was meaning. He is using jack stands, but 5 gallon buckets work if you don't have stands.
