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.

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