    I'd like this clarified also....
    Are new rack ends or tie rods needed at all? if so what is the best solution/option?

    If you use 10mm longer control arms (such as RA40), you then need to adjust your tie-rods 10mm longer. I think there is just enough thread on the rack end, but don't take my word for it, check this. A safer option is to change to RA40 tie-rods, with the seperate ball joint on the end. You will then have more adjustment, and enough thread to make it safe.

    Or, if you use a steering rack spacer for extra lock (with requires shorter tie-rods) the effect may cancel out and you can use standard tie-rods and rack ends.

    Hi guys,

    I have powersteering in my 86,

    Planning on using KE30 LCA`s as they are same as Xt130 & TT132.
    If I get Longer Tierods is that all I will need? I wont need both longer tie rods and rack ends?

    Cheers Keisuke
