Help with alignment after manual rack.

Postby CloudStrife » Fri Feb 23, 2018 12:07 pm

So I'm sure you guys know I did a manual rack swap from a AW11 MR2.

I got Megan AE86 inner rods (Power Steering)

and these outer tie rods:

The tech says the tie rods are maxed out for adjustment, and it's really not safe to drive on, all though it is basically aligned (not on rack yet).

He said the outer rods are about 5 3/4", but need to be longer @ 7-7 1/2".

I checked part stores, and either the outer is too long(~11"), or too short(~3"), and differing inner rod length as well.

Thoughts? I don't really see how this can be an issue as nobody else has run into this problem..

I ran into this same problem. I used the Megan inner rods with the T3 outer rods and that fixed the issue.

Eh, T3 and their Wal-Mart esque have been annoying me lately. The site was down the whole day and I couldn't even look em up!

I ended up combing through Oreily's and found an inner and outer pair that should work. I'll post it up later.
