Recently installed a new steering box (Flamming River) and centered the box as per the marks on the input and output shafts. Installed a new Pittman arm along with a roller idler arm; rest of suspension parts are in good shape. This is a manual steering system

Now the problem: the idler arm is not pointing straight forward...its' off a couple degrees toward the outside of the car. As you know, the Pittman arm can only be clocked a certain way due to the thick aligning spine....but it appears to be pulling the idler arm off a bit.

In the end, this will make my tie rods unequal length - not by much, but it will still be there. Wondering is this is a significant issue or am I over analyzing things.
