You should not recommend that someone cut and weld their Tie rods even though if you had to do it slugging them like you did is preferred.

I suggested that people should just buy a tap for like $10 or so and cut the RH thread end off the appropriate amount and re-tap deeper. Interestingly enough when you cut your Tierods off you will still have some thread so re-tappng them is really easy. I did mine from start to finish in like 20 minutes with a tubing cutter, a tap and a Dremel for cutting the pinch slot.

This could be a life saver as theres nothing to break.

One question, where did you get the idea to use hose clamps and angle iron to hold it straight ?
