The first time I dropped the hammer on pavement it lurched to the left and just driving normal it wanted to pull to the right.I found the tire pressures off so that fixed the left/lurch part but still wants to pull slightly to the right under normal driving.I suppose I need to fine tune align.I'm a sledder from way back and one thing I know is that you need to toe out the skis or your sled will dart all over the place if you don't.I did a search and see PoPo. recommends toe out on the front wheels makes sense so that's what I'm going to do four the fronts.Just came back from checking the toe it seems all four are toed out but its hard to get a good reading.Heres a pic of how I did it. The pic isn't that accurate,there must be a better way.BRP says rear should be straight,no toe right? level.JPG

Look in the owners manual I think somewhere it tells you how much toe in is required.

Checked it again and looks to be the same,48 3/4 both sides.
Hard to get an accurate measurement by myself.Thanks for the reply.It goes straight enough for now just need to pile some more miles on her.Tomorrow i'm going to buy 4' of quarter inch all thread and a threaded coupling and get accurate Thanks again.

Got it now.When I remove that tie-rod bolt will it come out easy or will I need a special tool?It looks beefier than a tie rod on a sled like a ball-joint or something.

Those 2 brass nuts?I'm not picturing how to turn it a turn.One is close to the cvt joint and the other close to the wheel.
yup get a wrench on the brass nuts crack them loose and spin them out of the way a lil and then put a wrench on the tie rod and spin it the direction u need the wheel to turn ,

u don't need to remove anything

Benzo, both ends are threaded the same? Don't you have to spin the ball joint too? That's what I had to do. I think. LOL
