There is a lot of discussion about cv bind and strut length online but i cant find anything about tie rod and rack end limits, has any body tested the max strut length for the factory steering components?

Those ball joints have a lot of range. Just disconnect one end or the other to see.

I have found a set of "raised hieght cv joints" from a company hear in aus, they are supposedly different in the cage alignment and allow up to a 4 inch lift, suitable for a strut compressed length of 650mm with 40-50mm of movement. This will make running my extended length coils overs easier without using a diff drop. Do you think the factory rack ends will handle a 610mm strut length on stock ucas

That's math way above my pay grade, but the ball/socket end at the steering rack end of the inner tie rod has tremendous range.

Guess theres one way to find out, would be nice if these cvs allow full droop of the new struts too. No need for diffdrop or different boots.
