Default 93LE Tie Rod Ends

Anyone retro 93LE/94R tie rod ends? Did it help minimize bump steer?

I'm too lazy/cheap to buy bump steer gauges and measure everything, I'm a SOTP guy. It was bad before, almost perfect after. Good enough for me.

It's quite common for purpose built race cars with full spherical bearing suspension to have adjustable height tie rod ends, shims/washers usually.
Works for me. Part number is 8AN2-32-280 for anyone interested. Should allow sub 12" ride height in an NB.

I put them on when I convert to manual steering last year. Installation was easy and I believe Finish Line Performance had the best prices on them. I have not noticed a big difference. That probably has to do with me getting used to manual steering at the same time.
