How much thread engagement when building your steering?

I am going to be putting together my steering this weekend and after I get the knuckles pointing straight and the heims mounted on the knuckles, should I build the tie rod so it has about half of the thread showing for adjusting my toe in afterwards or should I have more/less thread showing? Thanks for the help.

As little thread as possible. The thread is the weakest part of the joint assembly.
