I have TT rear arms but it appears that they have almose an inch of collective toe in. Has anyone modified rear arms to accomodate heim joints -- spherical rod ends? Pete

Hi Pete,
Have you any engineering experience with rodends? It isn't just cut and dry stuff, there are things to know. Like normally they are wornout after a few hundred hours of usage. The guy to contact for help on racecars is John McCoy at Aurora Bearings.
