That was mentioned more for me. I usually buy my parts from other sources but have had good luck with RiffRaff. The sensor was my second order from him and was good price and pretty quick shipping.

changed out the tie rod ends this morning after a impromptu visit with the culvert. The body made it without a scratch. If I did not go in gently as I did, I would have rolled it for sure.

The steering wheel's still a bit ****ed, but better than before. Not sure what to chase down. I may get an alignment shop to check it out.

By definition, you need an alignment.

You mean the steering wheel is off part of a turn while going straight down the road?

The correct answer is a proper alignment but you can cheat poor man style until you get an alignment. To get your toe in/out you can measure the outside edge to outside edge, front and back of the steering tires and adjust the tie rods accordingly. To get your wheel straight, just adjust the drag link. That's all an alignment shop is going to do...they just use a computer to measure stuff instead of a tape. Last time I redid my whole steering assembly I got it so close with a tape that we never adjusted anything after checking it on the aligner.

Caster and camber is something they have to tackle but with a D60 you should never have to worry about either.
