recently put a DSM rack into my galant. This made the toe horrible on the alignment due to what seemed to be an incorrect length on the tie rods.

1.is the rack itself the same or different between the DSM and the GVR4? (internet research has so far yielded different part numbers for the power steering racks.)
2. what about the inner tie rods?

any info would help.



I like buying things that are broken for way too much money because they have "potential"

2 wheel steer rack, and all the in and out tie roads are the same... You need to adjust your toe whenever you swap steering rack, did you measure the total length before the swap?

There is a good chance the rack adjustment was not centered when it was installed. If so you will notice that one side will lock quicker than the other as well.
