Re: Tie rod end taper- tie rod flip
I recently purchased the tie rod flip kit (reamer with tapered sleaves) from ok4wd.
I just verified the angle of my tapered stabilizer bolt using an optical comparitor. Basically, the compound angle of the stablizer bolt (feels like the same as the TRE's) is approx. 7 deg, 25 mins.
The tapered sleaves are approximately the same.
The reamer (KD Tools P/N 2044) compound angle is approximately 10 deg, 30 mins.
The 3 degree difference seems and feels like a lot. Any suggestions?
