Default Re: Help! Tie rod end install

Chad,
First of all I do these on the bench as an assembly. I noticed your tie rod is in which is fine. It’s juat more difficult if backing plates are in the way. Again you can do the entire ateeringcarm as an assembly complete with pitman stem and install from the drivers side.

The correct order is spring , then insert with stem. I use a little grease and I see you already have the cap and rubber installed on steering arm. They typically go on with a wack from a dead blow or rubber mallet . Insert the threaded cap after it’s in the tie rod. I do these almost every week and don’t have any issues. If all is well the end plug should be about flush with the tie rod end. If you are using the steer exempt kit you will of course have the inserts.
