Just pulled in a 70 deville ...was putting a spindle on the front since it was missing one and noticed that the tie rods had a bend in them...on both sides.is this standard on there or did they both happen to get bent? If they are standard will swapping them for straight ones effect the steering in any way?

^^^^This seems to be a common problem in the 65-70 cadillacs I have come across. We ran one set like that and they just bent worse, so a custom set was fabricated to fix the problem, have not had another issue. I haven't looked at my 71-72's yet to see if they have a similar problem, but will check when I am out to the farm next and fill ya in.
