Yes..you want the tie rods to be as level as posible at "your" ride height. If you think about it, this gives the least amount of "sideways" unwanted movement of the steering ...as the tire goes up ( or down) a small amount... from a bump. At any tie rod angle that is not "flat"...the same bump deflection ( up or down) will cause somewhat more sideways motion of the steering. Best to draw a picture of a circle and look at the radius...and plot this out yourself. I'm also a "visual" kind of guy and this helped me too in the early days.
