Default long tie rods for drifting

hello

I have modified knuckles and extended lca's (wide track). however, this has created the need for longer tie rods (about 2-3" per side). does anyone know of a tie rod from another lexus or toyota or any other car that bolts right in and it about 3" longer than the sc tie rod? it would be a great help if such a thing existed because it would save me a lot more cutting and welding work. I would go with an aftermarket setup like battleversion but I dont think that will give me the extra width I need
thanks

95-00 lexus LS400 RIGHT inner tie rod is about 1" maybe 1.5" max longer then the SC.

stock sc inner and outer right now. car is still in build phase, but i need about 3" extra width on each side

maybe i could try to get two right (passenger side?) side ls400 tie rods and some adjustable rod ends

how much extra width can people safely get out of adjusable rod ends?

thanks for the help

With LS400 passenger side inner tie rods and battle version outer. I think you will have a good amount of adjustment.

You can use LS400 passenger inner tie rods on both sides of the SC.

Ever find the tie rod? I found a longer tie rod, maybe too long.
