extended tie rods and ends

FC inner tie rod pitch: M14x1.5
FC outer tie rod pitch: M12x1.25

S14 inner tie rod pitch M14x1.5

Now this also means that most of Nissan will fit, R chassis, Z chassis, Maxima etc

pulled from Zilvia:

Inner:
M12x1.25:
11.10" - '89-'94 240sx (S13)
M14x1.5:
11.37" - '95-'98 240sx (S14)
11.42" - '94-'99 Maxima (A32)
11.42" - '96-'99 I30 (A32)
12.00" - '97-'01 Q45 (FY33)
12.00" - '01-'06 Q45 (F50)
12.91" - '99-'03 Maxima (A33)
12.91" - '00-'04 I30 (A33)
13.30" - '03-'08 Maxima (A34)
12.50" - PSM Spherical
14.50" - GKTech

Outer:
M12x1.25:
x.xx" - '89-'94 240sx (S13)
M14x1.5:
3.63" - '95-'98 240sx (S14)
5.00" - '88-'94 Maxima (J30)
x.xx" - '94-'99 Maxima (A32)


I also happen to know that Subaru Forester and Dodge Caravan share the same inner pitch, but am not sure of their lengths. What this means is theres no reason to ever use the stock toothpick tie rods or use overpriced heim ends with cheap joints in them. The outer pitch of M14x1.5 opens up a world of options to reducing bump steer as well, either OEM style tie rods ends with a longer shank or heim joint style ends with spacers (GK, SPL, etc.)

while we all know s13 ends fit, but why bother?

thoughts? additional info? comment plz

Not sure if this helps, but I always ran Z inner tie rods when I had my s13 and never had a problem. I never really needed the extended length though, since I never ran bigger LCA's.
