Uneven tire wear - How do you check/adjust alignment

My -161 is in for annual and I am participating in an "owner assist." I noticed the left main tire has worn dramatically more than the right and is worn much more so on the inside edge of the tire. The right main and nose tire are evenly worn. The Service Manual, page 1J15, in the Troubleshooting Section states, "Check and adjust wheel alignment." But, there is no instruction anywhere in the manual describing the procedure. There is an instruction in the PA28R manual, but how applicable is a retractable procedure on a stiff leg Cherokee?

What procedures are you using?
