Default 2005 Arctic Cat 650V2 , Tie rod Question.

So I have a 2005 650V2.
I purchased this ATV and have been fixing it up ever since to get it back to a useable condition.
I attached a photo, but i'm a little stumped here. I just rebuilt the read cylinder so i had it all apart, and put it all back together, and it is pulling really hard to the Left. I went online to look at tie rod replacements, and none of them look like the tie-rods that are on my ATV.
Sorry i do not have a photo of them, but they Are curved, all the tierods i am finding online are straight.
So 1 question i have is when you get an extreme lift and bigger tires on a ATV is it common to use a different style of Tie-rod to accommodate this? My ATV has 29.5 tires and it sits really high.
2nd Question, if these tie-rods were just put in there cause the original owner thought would improve his performance in the hole, could i go back to stock tie-rods? i am using it more for farm work, towing trailers, plowing snow, little putzing around the homestead, no mudding or swamp bogging.
3rd question, Wheel alignment. All my tires look like they have a positive camber in them, were the top angels out a little like \ /, is this an issue or do some people align there wheels like this for a reason?

So any help is appreciated. Thanks

Since your machine is lifted your tires are always going to be like that. Someone has put aftermarket tie rods to clear the 4x4 actuator they have a bend in them. At the moment i cant think of a place that sells them but they are out their. If it were me i would just pull the lift and go back to stock
