Identify your suspension components first. Find your toe in and toe out from your tie rod ends. The tie rod ends have a flat top and bottom on the rods itself that can be adjusted in length. Get on your creeper and match the tires visually so that the front tire "eclipses" with the rear tire. If the rear tire "disappears" too early because of too much toe-out, then you need to shorted the tie-rod end depending on which side of the front tire disappears (front or rear). Find the other components and see if you can adjust them similarly. Hope this helps, it isn't going to be as accurate as a car shop, but it will get you there safely.
