Obviously I don't have access to a factory alignment tool let alone a qualified dealership, so... Went with the string alignment method. May not be perfect but close is better than way off.
Along the way I discovered that the vertical rotate bearings on the steering tie rod didn't seem quite right. Not sure what is supposed to be there but my guess is that there is supposed to be an o-ring top and bottom to keep the water out and the grease in. Mine is missing one of the o-rings and the needle bearings inside are now at bushing status. I greased them up and put it back together so I could verify the alignment. Will have to order up some parts to make it right.
One more thing to keep and eye on.
