    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.
