1930 DeSoto CF tie rod


Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me if this tie rod came with a curve in it or does it need to be straightened. Just installed kingpins and noticed the curve. It's more to the right side.

It should be straight.

 

Thanks,  that's kind of what I was thinking.  Good time to put it in the press and straighten. Plan on installing new spring bushings and wheel cylinders at the same time. Whose tires are you running on your car?

Garfield Safety Tire....I need to upgrade as you can see by the checking on the sidewall.

Thanks John.  My tires are more weathered than that and will be changed before spring.  I don't want another set of tires that go square in their spare time.
