Because Metric Monte Carlos have a mount welded to the crossmember that gets in your way when reassembling the steering, you have to attach both inner tie rods to the centerlink before you do anything else. At this point don’t tighten the nuts, just leave everything loose. You can then adjust the length of your tie rods, like I’m doing here. Make sure your front tires are reasonably straight. You’ll actually align it later but having the toe somewhere close to what you want saves time.
