    hey guys

    Just wondering what other rack ends are out there that are longer then the standard ke70 examples? have been playing around with the track on my car so i don't rub my inner guard on full lock. But have run out of adjustment on the tie rod end/rack end. Have heard that ae86 power steering rack ends are longer but don't know by how much, anyone know?

    cheers

    also is there a way to stop the tyres rubbing the tension rods on full lock? would getting lower offset wheels should fix it?

    i've got 15X7 -1 on the front. The only thing that it rubs on is the tension rod at nearly full lock everything else clears.

    RA60 celica ones are a fair bit longer.

    You will need wider wheels with more - offset of spacers either of those will be the easy way. Or get more front end track.

    Ok sweet that's just what I was after, will pick up a set of ra60 rack ends from work. Ah K may look into running a small slip on spacer on the front as well.
