Re: Tie rod replacement

The new tie rod should be set at the same lenth as the old one.Any time you
change tie rods you should get a alignment.Before you remove the old tie
rod,mark the threads with a yellow chaulk pin.This will give you some kind
of guide to go buy.Then compare new and old tie rod and mark the new one in
the same place as the old one.
