It appears that you have very significant wear on the tie rod and which would require mucho grinding on the arms to obtain the necessary clearance. The delta arms correct castor properly and leave lots of the rod clearance not to mention they come with new oem rubber bushings if you spec them that way. This solution kills three birds with one stone.Delta looks like a solid solution but is uncheap just to make a some clunking go away! Are the arms compromised in any way by taking some chunks out?
As I go through this more and more, I can't agree more- I've had them in cart all day now. I've already got a new tie rod en route, so I need to address bushings, plates, etc to not damage the new piece. I'm just vetting all possibilities prior with you all in case it turns up to be something else that I've not seen/reviewed propertyThis solution kills three birds with one stone.
I never did ask you; how do you use this method of estimating amount of lift? I don’t think the front track bar was perfectly level with stock suspension.
Don't use it yet, not enough data. The hope is that eventually there will be enough data to say something along the lines of "you have 3.75" of difference, that means if you go to an alignment shop they will most likely tell you you have -0.1* of caster". Probably a long ways off though.I never did ask you; how do you use this method of estimating amount of lift? I don’t think the front track bar was perfectly level with stock suspension.
