Default Re: Help! Tie rod end install

OK, I have no idea WTF I am doing wrong. And I am not a novice wrench turner by any means. I took an original spring and cup, inserted it into the new tie rod body and still couldn't get it to go on. I have to be doing something blatantly wrong.

But my comparison of old and new all seem like they are both the same. Both springs are 1", cup heights the same, how far they protrude into the opening of the tie rod body at rest, are the same. Everything is the same. So what am I doing wrong. Is there a procedure I don't know of?

I cant see the possibility of the balls being to big. They seemed the same as the worn ones I cut off. Grrrr, such a simple project I thought this would be.
