no, as the steering arm reaches full lock the track rod end mounting point is further back than when 'straight ahead'. if the measured difference is say 30mm mount the rack back 15mm. then when on full lock the rack is 15mm in front and 15mm behind when straight ahead. if you mounted the rack in front when straight ahead the steering angles would get more out of line as lock increased. hope that makes sense.Setting it forward should be the same as well?
