2. This truck had a bent outer tie rod, which was affecting the alignment. If you have to change a tie rod, measure the old unit and set the new one to those specs. That will get you pretty close to being aligned. Another thing you can do with the tie rods is center the steering wheel. If the wheel is off to the left, then lengthen the passenger side tie rod and shorten the driver’s side equally. If the wheel is off to the right, then shorten the passenger side and lengthen the driver’s side.
