Unfortunately not.  I'm off to Japan on the 2nd-14th Feb for a snow holiday so I miss two of the best summer event's that I'd want to go to.

Next year for sure though.  Planing to be at Nats in Featherston with this though.

Double check those tie rod ends are right.  Are they even locking into the taper? It looks as though there's a massive step on them instead of a gentle taper so they may not even be going far enough into the knuckle? 

Could just be me looking at a tiny screen on my phone though.

Ball joint looks substantially different from the original.. 

 

I've had a decent look at them - was thinking the same as you both that the taper looks different.  They sit nicely in the knuckle though.  Annoyingly they're the same part number (different brand though) so if you both are right may have to look at replacing them.

there are two different sizes for rx4/929 models, and not by much, put a vernier across the small end of the taper to compare - going by images (eyecrometer) you have the wrong ones
