OK - now time to deal with steering arm being bent " wrong " . Here's the process: bolt up steering arm and spindle together. Then, center the steering wheel of the car to "dead-on" straight. Visually put spindle in "dead-on straight" position as well ( I used a straight-edge against the surface of spindle to get it close to straight..). You will then see how far the steering arm has to be bent to get it to mate with the outer tie-rod.

Another solution would be to shorten the tie-rods. I elected to bend the steering arm instead. Anywhere close to where it will mate with tie rod is good enough, as long as it's withing the range of the tie rod adjustment sleeve.
