Tie rod length

Could anyone help me on the proper length to adjust my tie rod to. What is the factory length ect. I can't seem to find it in my Haynes manual.

It varies depending on the amount of toe-in. Needs an alignment most likely if you've replaced front end parts.

As mentioned, it will vary. I measured center to center on the tie rod ends while they were still attached to the tie rods. This gave me a pretty good baseline of where my new parts needed to be. Still needed an alignment after I was finished.

You can get it pretty close with a tape measure. Here's a writeup.
