Setting the engine low in the chassis had some draw back. The steering rack had to be lowered, increasing tie rod angle to an undesirable degree. This called for lowered steering provision on the knuckle.

Now I have about 3 inches of "bumpsteer adjustment" dependent on the cars final ride height. The 5/8 heims should give good steering feed back as well.

Im going to clean up the knuckles and press the hubs back in during class monday. Once I determine the thread pitch of the inner tie rods I can thread my outer tie rod tubes.
