You are saying that your toe is out of adjustment somehow, well how about getting it aligned? Toe is adjustable by adjusting the length of the tie-rod in front of the axle. You can get it close with a tape meansure and then bring it to a shop to get it perfect.

If you really mean that you knocked the camber/caster out of wack then it's much tougher.

Get it aligned.
