The tie rods control braking stability and Caster! "Rose-jointed" end are the solid answer to total control! Sold with joints and in pairs. Caster Angle – viewed from the side of the car, the top ball-joint should be positioned behind the bottom one. The angle made by a line drawn through the ball-joint centres and vertical describes caster angle. It’s effect is a self-centering action that causes the car to run straight where no steering input is made and pulls the wheels back to straight ahead when exiting corners. Controlled by tie-rod length, shortening it will increase the self-centering effect, lengthening it the opposite. Increasing it also helps reduce the positive camber induced by body roll. On the downside, increasing caster decreases camber and induces body-roll by virtue of lowering the inner wheel and raising the outer wheel when cornering. Having said that, a big caster angle can cause the inner edge of the inside tyre to re-engage the ground where the wheel goes 'light' in a tight corner, helping to restore some grip. A further effect of increasing caster is a very slight lengthening of the actual wheelbase, increasing in effect as the wheels are turned on the outer side in a corner. Perhaps very slightly increasing stability.
