    Thanks Merlot. I assumed the inside threads would be the opposite of the outside ones, otherwise turning the tie rod would have no effect. You were much more helpful than the shop manual.
    18mm, eh? Not many sets are sold here with that size, they jump from 17 to 19mm. The search is on for a 18mm crow foot.

    the crows foot is also a bit fiddly to use,what with the extensions needed(most come in 3/8 inch and i dont have a lot of 3/8 extensions)

    a better solution is to make one

    cut down a long 1/2 extension bar to 17inches or 433mm long
    cut the open end head off of combination spanner 18mm
    then weld the open end head onto the extension bar,at right angles

    makes a much better tool as its all in one piece

    i then place a dot on top of the tie rods so i know how much i turned it(anymore than 1/2 turn on one side only will affect steering position)its easy to get it wrong so advisable to get a "proper"wheel alignment ASAP....or make your own kit and DIY

    That is great information Merlot....thanks again.
    All I want is to get some toe in until I can get her to a shop that does the laser alignment. She's a handful with toe out.

    Kind of a slow time of year for a lot of us....waiting out "Old Man Winter"...getting some new front tires mounted today and will put em on the RT later today. Unfortunately the roads around here are still full of salt, so I won't be taking a test ride any time soon...Went with a pair of Vredestein Quatrac 5's......We'll see....

    I finally had a decent dry day. Hit 34F here. Perfect for me. So drove it to work and drove around for a bit at lunch.
    Taking it to the dealer tomorrow to have them put 3 new Kenda Canine tires on and do a laser adjustment as well. Then sunday drive half the day before the Football game comes on. And then monday, (last good day for awhile)I intend to run 200 miles or so just cruising around.

    We went for a 100mi. ride with my son on his 2014 Triumph Trophy and my step-son on his 2007 Yamaha Virago 250. My first ride with the new exhaust system and it sounds freaking awesome. I love the deceleration rumble, and it accelerates quicker (at least it sounds quicker }. With the weather now turning to crap I'm contemplating getting the ECU flashed.

    My 10 yo great grandson and I installed an RLS cat delete. I had Rowan do most of it, teaching him how to use tools. He's a quick learner and loves spinning spanners.
    Of course, we had to take 'er out to hear the result. A more throaty sound and just a wee bit louder. Nice! Just what I wanted and why I went with an RLS delete.

    That's what my step-son and I just put on my 2015. with the stock muffler it was still quiet and as you said more throaty, but with the China-Akropovic muffler it sounds awesome and my wife didn't mind the sound.

    Finally got around to putting the Baja Ron sway bar on my '17 RTL. Bout time Iv had it laying around for a year on the shelf. Now I'l see how it makes my Spyder handle in the curves.
    Put a Show Chrome chrome trunk rack on wife F3L. Both very easy projects. More things to put on another day.

    It would look even cooler with a Scorpion Stinger sticking out of the top box.

    Simply pushed it out of the way into driveway so other tasks could be done. Certainly needs a good scrub.

    Keep checking the function of my modified rear trunk gas spring, lid opens great still.
