I am saying that without all the specs of distance apart the control arms are (how wide in the frame they are mounted) the "length" of the center link can not be determined.

I never mentioned location of the outer tie rod ends because that wasn't asked. The "length" of the center link has nothing what so ever to do with location of the tie rod ends.

The location of the tie rod ends in relation to the ball joints absolutely have every thing to do with Ackerman angle, but that wasn't the question.


What exactly are you after, are you simply chopping on me, sounds like it, or do you have a simple question. I am by no means an engineer of independent suspension but offered basic information in relation to the center link.
