Outer Tie Rods

I just had a disc brake conversion kit with a 2in drop spindle from CPP installed on my 1968 Impala. My problem with the installation is that my outer tie rods are 3 1/2ins off the ground and whats the name the piece that the outer tie rod is connected to. Can anyone help me resolve the problem with the outer tie rod being that close to the ground.

Your steering arm is pointing down; and you would be better off with one that is level with your lowered application. I don't know if one off a Chevelle will bolt on or one off of a light truck for that matter. I would enquire with CPP to see if they offer a fix for this situation.

Could it be that they are on the wrong sides of the car? If you reverse them and flip them over would their be enough clearance from the hub? I did mine recently with ssbc drop spindles and they were a perfect fit but that's on a 64.
