    Default ps arms + xt131 control arms = new tie rods??

    Yeah basically as in the title i've installed some ps arms in my ae71 when i swapped to ae86 front suspension and i have some ?xt131? control arms that i want to put in soon and it just occurred to me that this might be to much for my poor standard tie rod ends!
    So yeah if i have the ps arms and control arms will there still be enough adjustment left on stock tie rods?? Cos i would kind of like to know before the cars is taken to pieces
    Cheers

    If you wanna be super safe you can use the same tie rod ends and turnbuckle tubes as the XT130 used. You can get the same parts off an RA40. With xt 130 arms the tubes will force you to recentre the rack and you will only have about 3mm thread sticking out of each end of the tubes.

    Not necessary, but thats how I run mine and its pretty darn solid.
