I did what everyone else has suggested, measure on the truck.

I installed the TREs on both knuckles and screwed the weld in bungs exactly half way, then centered both knuckles so they were straight forward and measured for the length of the tie rod.

A word of caution with the weld in bungs. It is VERY easy to penetrate too far and melt into the inside of the bung. This will warp the threads and you will never get your TRE to thread into it. I consider myself a decent welder and I screwed up 2 of the 4 weld in bungs by penetrating too far. I am making no assumptions about your welding ability, just thought I'd warn you. Good luck and keep us posted with pics of the swap.
