    hey mate,

    the lock spacer has to bolt to the end of the actual rack...

    so yes, you need to take off the inner tie rod...

    AJPS Extra Lock Spacers
    Fitting Instructions
    Unbolt both tie rod ends
    Bolt the screw-in lock Spacer on PASSENGER side of steering rack ONLY
    With tie-rods off turn lock-to-lock and count the turns
    Then half that amount and turn the wheel from full lock to the half-way point
    Your rack will now be centered

    Now bolt your tie rod ends back on using loc-tite or similar
    Get a wheel alignment
    Recommended wheel alignment specs for aggressive driving:

    3.5 + caster
    2 – camber
    2 total toe out
    NB: THIS ITEM IS FOR RACE OR OFF ROAD USE ONLY
    NB: Longer control arms (corona, sigma, rose jointed are highly recommended or you may need to cut 8mm off your outer tie rod ends (some racks only)


    thats copied directly from the AJPS website

    cheers
