Preload should be set tight enough to create slight resistance
in the steering when turning the knuckle side to side by hand, but it is absolutely critical that the preload is
checked and reset as necessary after the first 20 miles and after each race

That was just a quote of a quick search, good luck

When I did mine, I serched and found to use a fish scale and pull the knuckle side to side, and tighten untill a certain resitance was met, but its been while and don't remember what it was.
