I believe they do make adjustable tie rods for them. Is it a chance the bushings are bad in the spindles causing the toe out issue? I have heard that as well.

If the spindle bushings have a lot of wear and causing the toe out, you should be able to turn the wheels so they're straight by hand. Hal

I can turn the wheels so they are straight but they will not stay in that position and go right back to their toe out position, so it is a good chance the bushings are worn out badly. Makes sense to me as it does not appear the tie rods are bent. Sounds good and thanks for the information, I appreciate it!

If Sears doesn't have new bushings your local machine can probably make new bushings. Before
ball joints were used on vehicles they used king pins and bushings. Even though they had zerk fittings for greasing the bushing still would wear causing tire wear. I put them in a 1951 Chevy and an old mechanic told me not to remove the old bushings just drive down the old bushings with the new bushings. The same thing on the bottom and install the new king pins. These kits were available from Sears. Ball joints would wear over time as my 57 Chevy had them. Hal
