Tie rod location, a little advice please


New Member
Hi guys,
I would really appreciate some expert advice on calculating tie rod length and pivot height location. I've searched and looked around and it seems there are multiple answers, but i'm not sure which one is correct.

By the way, its a sandworks sand car that i had to fabricate all new control arms for because the old ones got wadded up in a crash by the previous owner. (I do not have the old uprights or arms).

Thank you very much for any help,

Looks great but steering is super touchy and critical to do. My new car I'm building is at a top named fab shop and it took many man hours to get the minimum bump steer. Could I figure it out? Probably but sometimes leaving some stuff to the pros isn't such a bad thing.
How much bump steer did u end up with? Very nice car.
