    If you add spacers between your steering rack and the inner tie rod..it is going to fuck up your toe angle. That guy in the picture above is running a fully modified steering control system...not just different inner tie rods.

    Umm dude, you just get an alignment. You can run tie rods with stock everythings else.

    Think about it a little more before saying just get an alignment.

    If you put these on and get an alignment with the adjustment of the outter tie rods, it will just cancel these out or am I missing something.

    No you are missing something these just allow more turns lock to lock by not bottoming the tie rod out in the rack when you turn.

    ahhh I see now..so these allow the slide gear in the steering rack to go slightly further...I got it now. I wasn't thinking about the rack lock.
