How to do your own alignment?

Does anyone on her know how to do an alignment on your own? Is it like how you align the tires on a motorcycle and use a string to make sure the front is aligned with the back? Any help or advice will be much appreciated.

You can do some measurements with a tape measure to adjust toe. JUst spend the 35 bucks and get it done right. You dont want to tear up your tiresearly

yeah same here and thats the same thing i said! but my alignment at home was only so good and after 2 years time the wear was showing, i took it to the professionals its a cheap fix but not a permeant one, but it will get you buy with minimal wear for awhile at lest.
