1996 Chevy Silverado V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 362000 miles

I was recently informed that I needed new inner tie rod ends plus idler arm and pitman arm. The idler and pitman were changed about seven months ago. Upon my inspection, I found that the driver side inner tie rod was loose, the nut was about to come off. I still have some play in the idler arm. It appears that the bushing is not compressed enough. My question is can I dismount the idler from the frame and tighted the bushing nut. There is only about 1/2 inch clearnace under the stud and hadly no way to force the arm further on the idler arm.

Did you do the work or did someone else? If some one else I would check and see if there is a warranty? If you did it your self, see if there is a warranty on the parts? I wouldnt try to tighten the idler.
