Don't think an Allignment is necessary. The bell crank won't change toe in or camber or castor. The only thing it might change is steering wheel center. That can be adjusted using the drag link and doesn't require realignment.

Couldn't get an impact into the space between the fender liner compartment and the bellcrank shaft. The castle nut is 1 1/2". Just used a big long pipe wrench on the castle nut and 1/2 " socket and racket on the mounting bolts. I'll used a torque wrench when installing the new one. I'll post some pics when I reinstall.

Attached photo is intended to show the Supersteer bell crank installed with little clearance between the shaft and the fender liner and the forward compartment. No effect on steering wheel center that I can tell. Only drove for about 10 miles after the install but there is (in my opinion) a noticeable improvement in steering. Reduces the amount of steering corrections required and when a correction is made it's not immediately followed by another. I think it's worth the $390 I paid for it.

The things that Supersteer says about the OEM bell crank also appear to be true. After removing the OEM I tried to turn the shaft by hand and couldn't do it. The Supersteer turned fairly easily by hand.

edgewant; you the man, great job.
Let us know how it does after you get more miles under your belt. How much play is in the steering wheel when say you carefully turn the steering wheel minutely CW to where steering right occurs then CCW to where steering left occurs. Hopefully the play is zero, which give no wander room for the steering to do its own thing.

That's a tough one. I'd say nil. Stuck my head out the sliding drivers window before and after the change. Original had some slop and required about a 1 in movement left or right before the tire would move noticeably. The tire essentially moves instantaneously with the Supersteer.
