I scored a Currie Currectlync steering on craigslist for a steal knowing that one of the tie rod ends needs to be replaced. I did not notice at the time I bought it but I did notice when I got home that there is a slight bend at the driver side end of the tie rod. I'm not sure if it should be bent but I'm thinking a new tie rod along with the TRE.
I have some pictures of the bend in the tie rod along a straight edge for reference.
Another Question is the matter of my pitman arm. I think I've that the currie system works best with the OE pitman arm. I'm sure that my PA is dropped (installed by previous owner) and screwed up the steering geometry. Should I replace my PA with an OE PA and get my drag link parallel with the track bar?
I got a new one and it isn't bent at all. As for the pitman arm, mines stock and i have a 3" lift and 1.5" levling spacers and mine drives great.
It's better to be dead and cool than alive and uncool.
Nothing like a permanent reminder of a temporary feeling. I have a few.

I noticed no body has talked about your tie rod yet
Since you need new tie rod and tre... Talk to Gerald at SAVVY and get there ultimate heat treated 4340 chromoly currie tie rod!
If you push it up against a rock hard enough it will bend and be genteler on other parts and it will bend right back after you get off the rock
The point is so that you can wheel hard and drive home with straight steering. Also if you have steering that is to strong like some people make it won't bend... But is so strong that it will take out other components and will bring up weak links else where
