What length of tubes do you use on a Dw-8 for the outer tierods? We were told 12" by DW, but when we bolted everything together, we had a TON of toe-out! We are using pinto spindles, stock chevelle inner tierods. What the heck did we do wrong?

you need 11" swedge tubes for your tie rods, if you were to use 78-88 metric inner tie rod end you would use the 12" swedge tubes.

I just looked back at the e-mail I got from DW, & the inner tierod part # they gave me was a Moog # ES370R. I called our local parts store, & they said that was an inner tierod for a 65-70 Chevy truck. I thought DW ran all chevelle front end parts except the spindles, & rotors.
