    Default Steering rack/tie rod question

    Hi guys,

    I used to know this off the top of my head but now can't remember at all.

    I've got LCA's 25mm longer than factory and power steering arms and need to remember what rack end, steering tube and tie rod I need to use.

    I think I used to run XT130 rack ends, RA40 tube and tie rod ends.

    Cheers, Ben

    I have RA40's with XT130 LCA's and I'm not sure if they'd reach 25mm, if they do you would't have much adjustment . Maybe a longer "tube" or find something with the same thread pitch etc.

    Im pretty sure Im running ra60 rack ends, with rose jointed tie rod ends. My control arms would be about 25mm longer than standard also..

    Ra40 tie rod outers
    Any Toyota with a steering box will have steering tubes to suit.
    My lca's are +30mm and I have very short steering arms and there is plenty of thread engagement

    I run xt130s, ps knuckles,lock spacer, 86 tie rods and standard rack ends.

    I tried to run ra60 rackends but they were to long and I had heaps of toe in and ran out of adjustment. Stock rackends only just worked.
