I'm in process of changing all 4 tie rod ends, idle arm and pitman arm. please help. I would like to give donation but have no credit card is there another way.
As far as the stabalizer bushings, tighten them until the rubber bushings are the same size in diameter as the washers they sit in. For the tie rods, it shows 39 ft.lbs. There is no listing for the pitman arm, but I believe it is locked and prevented from moving with a cotter pin. Make it tight and make sure to replace the cotter pin so it can't move.
Thanks very much for the advice. I will do that with stabilizer bar , idle arm and pitman arm
Glad to help. As far as the pitman, mitchel doesn't provide torque specs for it. As long as you tighten it and replace the cotter pin so it can't come off, you should be fine.
When i torque the castle nut on my new tie rod ends to the specified 45 ft-lbs, the nut is several turns past the hole in the stud for the cotter pin. Is this OK? (98 grand prix)
