Default New Watts Link and Rods

Lowered Tein frt and rr springs the rear axle was shifted to the right 7mm (about 1/4"). Nothing major but it just bugged me. Just installed a new watts link and Moog link rods. Parts on were original but not worn or noisy, just doing preventative maintenance. The Moog right side short arm has a lock nut on the ball joint and is adjustable. Length was same as original but what I did was loosen the lock nut and wound the ball joint IN 3 full turns. Installed the parts and torqued the bushing ends to the body with the vehicle resting on the jack stands per the manual. Took a drive to settle everything in and re-measured and now side to side is within 2mm. I would say close enough.
