Default Help with alignment angle measuring unit



How to you convert whatever unit that is after the degree (41') into degrees?
I tried to google this but ended up nowhere... is it actually 2.41degrees or you have to convert the (41') into degrees?

you don't want the GPS coordinates of your alignment?


you just need a online convertor from degress () minutes (') to decimal.

-241' = -2.6833333333333336
-244' = -2.7333333333333334


there are 60 minutes, so 41 divided by 60 = .683. therefore 41' = .683

ah... now it all makes sense...

Hahaha thank you so much I was skeptical. I gave my car to a buddy to take it to a shop because my work hours conflict with shop hours and he returned the car to me with those numbers. (I asked for 2.6 and 0 toe)

When I thought I got 2.4 camber and almost 1degree toe on each side, I freaked out but I imagined that apostrophe had a hidden meaning.
