Re: [DML] Re: Steering rack boot installation

The toe portion of alignment is adjusted by moving the tie rod ends on
the threads of the steering rack ends.  If you put the tie rod ends back on 
in exactly the same place they came from, you will not change your
alignment.  So - count the number of turns it takes to remove the rod
end from each side and put the rod end back on with exactly the same
number of turns.
