Inner tie rod length?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know offhand how long the threaded portion of the inner tie rod is on a 240Z?

Added camber with new lower control arms and need to adjust toe out quite a bit more.

Want to make sure I do not go too far for safety reasons of course. Thanks.

No, talking about the other end where tie rod screws on to.

Super. Thanks zKars. Shows 2".  I have just around 1" out so I am good. I had it all back together and did not measure it,

so that saves me from pulling one end off again. I owe you one.

I ended up with a lot of toe in by lengthening the lower control arms so I needed to crank more toe out to bring it back.

Glad I had one handy. 

I'd want 1.5 times the diameter of the threads (M14) engaged for strength as a minimum. 21-22 mm, almost an inch. The threads are M14x1.5 LH and RH. There are vendors that have rod end solutions that might get you some more length.  Techno toy tuning comes to mind.
