MM bumpsteer kit MMTR-2 longer than stock

Hey guys, I finally got around to aligning my frontend after swapping my front brakes to sn-95 parts. My car is a 79 with an old AJE kmember, MM fox length a-arms, MM coilovers, and 95 spindles. I got the camber set to -1.3 last weekend and moved on to setting the toe. Problem I'm having is that both of my tierod ends are only threaded in 6 turns each. My passenger front tire looks like its basically 0 toe, while my drivers tire looks like it will need to be toed in barely. So, I'm concerned with the amount of thread engagement I have with the stock tierod ends. Does anyone know if MM's MMTR-2 bumpsteer kit would allow me to have more thread engagement over stock? I have alot of threads still showing on both my inner tierods, so i was considering buying the MMTR-7 kit and just threading them in a whole lot. Any input on this?

The distance from the end of the inner face of the aluminum sleeve to the geometric center of the rod end is 5.92" for the MMTR-2. For the MMTR-7 it is 6.82". Stock 1990-93 tie rods are about 5.90" long, so you will need the MMTR-7.

It should be nominally the same as the 1990-93 tie rod. I don't have one here to check.
