Keeping steering wheel straight adjust the rack and pinion until passenger wheel is straight, then adjust toe-in.

Thank you! I will try that this afternoon and see. There was about a 2 inch difference from spindle to spindle on old axle and new axle.

Do you have a picture? Pictures help when trying to actually visualize what you are talking about.

It is a 2011 ezgo st sport 2. It does not have the factory lift like I have heard most of them do. I found out today that they technically donít make a lift for this cart but the txt should work. I had the mechanic at work look at it today and he is going to cut my tie rod 2 1/2 inches and he is going to modify the rack to make it work as well. In order for the steering to have 2 complete turns each way, the rack will need to be adjusted about 1 1/2 shorter as well.
