anyone use stock tierod ends (maybe ream the tapers in the spindle steering arms) to raise or lower the outer pivot point on the tierods to adjust bumpsteer with stock stuff? what tierod ends did you use? how much did you lower them? etc etc etc. help! thanks, neil (working with 76 camaro sreet stock)

the ticket for your camaro is to manipulate the inner tie-rod hights (raise them to correct toe-in in bump). These heights can be changed easily enough by relocating the idler vertically and bending the pitman arm and/or changing to a differnt drag link.

the typically high positive caster used raises the outer tie-rods .... so, raising the inners is normally the solution. To raise them, I like using a ds883 (75-81 firebird and 80-81 6cyl Camaro)drag link with a the long flat powersteering pitmann arm as a good starting point.
