Adjustable Tie-rods
When you change the length of the lower control arm to attain the desired degree of camber, the caster also changes. To reset it you must be able to change the length of the tie-rods. Our special adjustable tie rods are almost twice the diameter of the stock version and are far less likely to bend. Remember, in addition to controlling caster, these tie-rods also control stability under braking!
Busings not included. See 31G1155 for standard rubber. WB3, C-STR628, -629, -and 631 for harder options.
Use GFK3224 for the lock nut.

Stock rod diameter is .5", these adjustable heavy duty rods are .630" diameter.

Having applied Hi-Los and some smart 165/60/12 profile tyre shod12 x 5-inch ally rims, discussions get around to just why does this combination cause the tyre to hit the front arch? Well, it's all a question of alignment - either subframe to body or suspension to subframe.
Heavy duty adjustable tie-rods
Created: January 29, 2000
These rods have been produced to improve car stability when cornering and braking, and facilitate easy adjustment of castor angle. Manufactured from a high grade material in a much bigger diameter, they are less susceptible to bending than the standard items. The standard castor angle is 3° + ½°. This will change when the car is raised or lowered, and when adjustable or negative camber bottom arms are used (these tend to increase castor).

Tough, straight, heavy

I have these with the C-AJJ3360 On Car Adjustable Front Lower Arms and it is a rock-solid setup, very hard daily driving. I did however read a post where some guy had the retaining nut on the bushing get loose and it put him into the center divider on the freeway. However, it could be any tie-rod; not these. Here they say to use a GFK3224 locknut, but I am going to use my existing castle nuts, drill the tie rod shaft and cotter pin it.
