heidts super ride exposed wheel front end

I have a Heidts super ride II exposed wheel front end. The passenger side wheel seems to be out of alighnment, points to the out side slightly, also the steering wheel is not centered when the front wheels should be in the straight ahead position. What do I adjust to true this up?

Thanks

Here's what I did on my TCI Mustang II front suspension;

With the rack n pinion steering assembly disconnected from the spindles and steering column, center the steering by making sure the tie rods have the same travel on both sides. Connect the steering column to the rack with the steering wheel in the proper position. You might need to re-position the steering wheel on the column to get it perfect. Connect the rack to the spindles, and adjust the tie rods to get the alignment into spec.

My TCI suspension came with no instructions (arrrrrggggggg!), so I used this method based on intuition/experience breaking other people's cars.

It might not be the optimum setup procedure, but it worked for me.

Hope this helps. Merry Hotrodding!
