After the arms were installed, both knuckles were straightened out and the tie rod was test-fit. We had to remove 2 inches from the DOM tubing for the proper fit. If you don't have a metal lathe in your garage, a chop saw will suffice. Another option would be to install the steering arms and then measure the exact length of tubing necessary and have it cut to length when you purchase it. After the proper length for the tie rod and drag link were determined, the bungs were welded into the tubing.
