German translation:see below
Explanation:
toe/wheel allignment = Spureinstellung

toe-in = Vorspur

toe-in angle = Vorspurwinkel

toe-out = Nachspur

toe-out angle = Nachspurwinkel

toe-out on turns = Lenkdifferenzwinkel = Spurdifferenzwinkel = Voreilwinkel

thrust angle = offset angle = Spurversatzwinkel

thrust line = Versatzlinie (not in dictionary, just a guess)

caster = Nachlauf

caster = castor (both English)

caster angle = Nachlaufwinkel

caster effect = Nachlaufeffekt

trail = mechanical trail = caster offset = Nachlaufstrecke

front tie rod (AE) = side rod/track rod (BE) = Spurstange

wheel camber = camber = Radsturz

camber angle = Sturzwinkel

With the exception of "thrust line", the above translations are from Schmidt-Pons Fachwörterbuch der Kfz-Technik
