What is the correct steering tie rod angle, should they be parallel to the ground? I have lowered( 1 coil) front end in my 80 Futura and bought a set of those bump steer correction solid bushings with offset holes. Now I red somewhere that these bushings can actually lift the steering rack too much and perhaps make the situation even worse.Should the tie rods be parallel or be pointing up/down? If so, at which angle? If those bushings do lift the rack too high can different tie rod ends with offset ends be used... I believe 92(?) up Mustang ends could be used for this purpose.
By the way, I just took my 393 stroker to machine shop last week, will start the assembly propably in a week or so.
