If after the heads are installed the car is rolled any amount without the heads staying level it will throw your toe off. Were the heads compensated on the wheels prior to alignment? Too much toe will just bind up the front but shouldn't make it darty, I would guess your toe is off. Straight ahead is still not too bad, but toe out could make it darty. Too little caster will make self centering go away and you will have to steer into and out of a corner. FYI, tightening the nut on the steering arm will change toe .010 on my stuff, so I have to lead this a bit.
Handbrake was on all the time, so I asssume it was not rolling. I didn't compensate the heads on the wheel as for some reason the front heads button will not work. Steering wheel was block during setting toe as per instructions.
I redid the alignment, but it didn't seem to come back to the same measurements. The distance from the rear of the front rims to the string was the same left to right and also at the front of the rear rims. So I assume at least they have the same amount of toe.
Toe at the rear is 1/8 at the front a tad more than 1/32 (0.04")
The caster is at 5°34' left, 5° 37' right. Cannot get them any closer as the shims are not that thin.
