Setting toe on rear end..

I'm probably an idiot but going to ask this anyway... I ordered the Pfadt rear trailing arm and rear tie rod package. In the directions it says after installing the rear tie rods you will need to set the toe.. If these are solid and non-adjustable, how will i be able to do that? Or will I not. This is probably a no-brainer but somebody be nice and help me out thank you

Toe rods?

You need an alignment after replacing the toe rods. Pfadt can provide you with performance alignment specs.

They are adjusted using the OEM "eccentric" bolts, which are shaped kinda oblong to allow adjustment. If I remember correctly, the inner bolt on the toe rods is an eccentric bolt. If you're installing non-adjustable arms, the best thing to do is to mark the head of the bolt and the adjacent frame so that the same adjustment can be maintained with the new arms. After that.....it is still advisable to go get an alignment.

My toe was so far out after installing those I had rubber piled up by the license plate after driving 35 miles on the interstate to get my alignment done. Lol....FOR SURE get an alignment.
