    Hi everyone,

    2008 Tacoma access cab 4 X 4 the
    tie rod end shaft at driver side was bent
    and the steering wheel is not centered.
    This happened due to an accident. I did
    by myself to straighten the shaft with a slight
    bent still (not perfect of course) Into this
    correction no wheel alignment yet.
    This proceedure of repair is it unsafe?
    Please advice, thank you.

    Raffy
