I recently purchased a 1986 CJ-7 and am having trouble getting the front end to line-up. It seems as though the tie rod/drag link is a couple of inches too long. I ordered a new link and it is the same length as the one on the vehicle. Even with the tie rod ends adjusted all the way in, the front wheels are toed out just enough to make the front end feel loose. All of the suspension and steering components are in very good shape so I know they are not the problem. My next step will be to take an inch off each end of the link. I hope someone has a better solution for me. This has really got me baffled, thanks in advance for any help!
