Toe out of spec

I have a 2003 G35 coupe on stock suspension. Every time i get my car aligned, the toe is always off on the front right. It goes back into spec but it goes out of spec constantly, I get an alignment every 2 months. The caster is off as well, I have adjustable SPC arms coming. I have some for the rear as well as the toe bolts ready to install. I want to get the front toe situated before i put coilovers on. I just replaced my compression rods and controls arms, any recommendations? Thanks!

Front toe is adjusted via the outer tie rod. If its going out of spec that quickly it is likely to be worn. Jack up the right front wheel and check side to side play. Personally I would replace since it is a pretty inexpensive part.

I thought that as well but isnít it inner tie rods that adjust toe? When I looked at them both, they both looked fine. I installed new ones about 20,000 miles ago but I might just replace them again to be safe. Thanks for your help!

Does it always trend in the same direction out of spec or vary at random?

Tends to always be the same, last few times it has been at about -0.05 to -0.08, only the right side.

Try to get some with grease fittings on them, I like to give them a pump a grease everytime I change the oil.

You could also just be hitting hard potholes or other normal wear. If you EVER bump the curb (it's conveniently out on that corner that usually hits) then that's 100% why.
