    Just ordered some T3 arms and tie rod ends for my 86 front strut conversion into a KE70. Just wondering if i will need inner rack spacers or anything else to make it all work and get more lock without binding scrubbing issues etc? Thanks

    The knuckles come with longer adjustable tie rod ends will that be enough to make the rack travel further or will I definately need a lock spacer as well? And anyone know if I will have to run xt130 LCA?

    So just wondering if the extra length tie rod ends will make up that extra bit of space that the KE 70 rack lacks?

    No, the longer tie rods just allow you to run xt130 arms without the danger of the rack end and tie rod coming apart because there isn't enough thread engagement.

    I'd throw the t3 gear in and get either a lock spacer or machined rack ends and leave the xt130 lcas off for now as it will make scrubbing worse everywhere.
