Anyone ever seen that the official tracking figure range is for a G3 Jimny?
Got a new gizmo for my classic cars that let's me adjust, but just wanted to check the Jimny but never seen any figures. 
Thanks Mike

Toe Setting
Toe is the turning in or out of the front wheels. The purpose of a
toe specification is to ensure parallel rolling of the front wheels
(Excessive toe-in or toe-out may increase tire wear).
Toe-in
“B” – “A” : 2 – 6 mm (0.08 – 0.24 in.)

This is Total Tow, it is 1mm to 3mm per side

For adjusting toe setting, refer to “Toe Adjustment” in this section.
Camber
Camber is the tilting of the front wheels from the vertical, as
viewed from the front of the vehicle. When the wheels tilt outward
at the top, the camber is positive. When the wheels tilt inward at
the top, the camber is negative. The amount of tilt is measured in
degrees.
Camber
“C” : 0° 30’ ± 1°
Alignment Service Data (Reference)
Caster
: 1° 55’ ± 1°

Procedure

Preliminary Checks Prior To Adjusting Front Wheel Alignment
Steering and vibration complaints are not always the result of improper alignment. An additional item to be
checked is the possibility of tire lead due to worn or improperly manufactured tires. “Lead” is the deviation of the
vehicle from a straight path on a level road without hand pressure on the steering wheel. Section 3 of this manual
contains a procedure for determining the presence of a tire lead problem. Before making any adjustment
affecting toe setting, the following checks and inspections should be made to ensure correctness of alignment
readings and alignment adjustments:
1) Check all tires for proper inflation pressures and approximately the same tread wear.
2) Check for loose of king pin bearings. Check tie rod ends; if excessive looseness is noted, it must be corrected
before adjusting.
3) Check for run-out of wheels and tires.
4) Check vehicle trim heights; if out of limits and a correction is to be made, it must be made before adjusting
toe.
5) Check for loose of suspension arms.
6) Check for loose or missing stabilizer bar attachments.
7) Consideration must be given to excess loads, such as tool boxes. If this excess load is normally carried in
vehicle, it should remain in vehicle during alignment checks.
8) Consider condition of equipment being used to check alignment and follow manufacturer's instructions.
9) Regardless of equipment used to check alignment, vehicle must be on a level surface both fore and aft and
transversely.
Toe Adjustment
Toe is adjusted by changing tie rod length. Loosen right and left
tie rod end lock nuts first and then rotate tie rod to align toe-in to
specification.
In this adjustment, right and left tie rod should become equal in
length (“A”).
After adjustment, tighten lock nuts to specified torque.
Tightening torque
Tie rod end lock nuts
(a) : 65 N·m (6.5 kg-m, 47.0 lb-ft)
3A-4 FRONT WHEEL ALIGNMENT
Camber And Caster Check And Adjustment
Should camber or caster be found out of specifications upon
inspection, locate its cause first. If it is in damaged, loose, bent,
dented or worn suspension parts and axle housing, they should
be replaced. If it is in vehicle body, repair it so as to attain specifications.
Steering Angle Check And Adjustment
When tie rod (2) or tie rod end (3) was replaced, check toe and
then also steering angle with turning radius gauge (1).
If steering angle is not correct, check if right and left tie rods are
equal in length “A”.
Steering angle
Inside : 35° ± 3°
Outside : 32° ± 3°
