I was wondering if there's a difference in the tie rods between base and turbo models.. specifically right inner on an '88. It seems that most part numbers are the same for both but Beck Arnley says theirs only fits on a base model. The Beck Arnley part number is 101-4227

Turbo or non turbo does not matter but the years do. Inner tie rods are a different length on each side on my 87 Supra. Outer tie rods are the same on both sides. You can see the length difference:

Hey Ryon, is that the sterotypical BHG coolant puddle residue there in green?
LOL!

Thank you that's what I needed to know! It's weird that Beck Arnley says theirs only fits a base model

by chance do you know the thread size of the tie rod ends? They look like a 14mm but unsure...
