My car was downright SCARY after I went 5-lug, the tie rod angle was terrible and the car would jump violently and tramline terribly, the car just wasn't fun to drive.
I bought the bumpsteer kit from MM and installed it with all of the spacers on top of the new tie rod end. I didn't even measure it, because even if I did I don't have enough range of adjustment to get it where it needs to be due to the tapered and not bolt-on kit I used. Just doing this made a HUGE difference, car is so tame on the roads now and predictable.
FWIW, I am planning a MM K-member and reaming out my spindles for the bolt-on bumpsteer kit, so I didn't worry too much about just bolting it on and not adjusting it properly.
