As I think about it a little more, I'd want to check your setup with some kind of gauge as the length of the tie rod and relative position of the steering arm has a little something to do with the bumpsteer also. And not seeing where the steering arm end is, I would have to say my previous answer of "close enough" needs to be disregarded.

in other words, the inner tie rod positions on the "red line" will be relative to where the outer tie rod end/ steering arm lands in relation to where the line drawn between the ball joints on the spindle.

If the steering arm is inboard of the ball joint line, then the inner tie rod end will be inboard about the same amount,with compensation for the outward lean of your "red line" . .

Did you buy the front end or make it yourself, or modify it somehow?

my signature lines...not really directed at anyone in particular..

BE different....ACT normal.

No one is completely useless..They can always be used as a bad example
