I'm looking at getting a tie rod tap. Was going to get one from snap on but that's not going to happen till almost next month.

I was looking at ordering from e-taps or somewhere similar which style should i get plug or bottoming? Im thinking plug, but I think i read somewhere to get a bottoming one but I see that being difficult to start straight.

Are you hand-tapping, or using a lathe?

Get a taper tap and be done. For this application it will do what you need it to do.

If you were tapping blind holes it would make sense to have the bottoming.

The taper will be the easiest to start and easiest to start square.
