on ONE side of the car, and you can remember the steering wheel position when driving straight (dead center, a little to right, a little to the left) before the tie rod failed, you can make adjustments to the new tie rod until the original steering wheel position is restored. Make half turn adjustments until the steering wheel position is as it was. This will get you real close to the alignment you had.
