From the diagram and the picture, it looks like there are two independent drag links from the sector arm and to center the steering wheel, you would have to adjust each tie rod end independent of each other. Ford probably uses both ends with RH threads to save the expense of stocking a RH and LH threaded ends. Check with Ford and see if the part no.s are different. Regardless, IMO it's a funky design as was the "twin I beam".

I need to have the one on my new Concord done too. Drives me nuts.

Aaron,
Did you ever get your steering wheel straight? Mine sags to the right about 10-15. It's in the shop right now having some factory paint redone... thought I might have them take a look at it while it's there.

Haven't gotten a chance to deal with it yet. Work keeps getting in the way...

Dunno about that. Couldn't seem to wear them out.
