18 Moving along to the new linkage kit, we secured the new idler arm to the pivot. We installed the hardware loosely to connect the pivot to the frame.
19 The freshly cleaned and painted center link was next. We connected it to the steering box and the idler arm, which involved installing the castle nut and cotter pin that were supplied with the kit. Once the center link was tight, the idler arm pivot bolts could be secured.
15 The inner tie rod was installed and secured to the center link and inserted in the spindle.
16 Using the supplied castle nuts and cotter pins, the inner and outer tie rods were locked into place.
17 New grease fittings were installed at all of the tie rod ends and the idler arm, we’ll get these joints filled with grease when it’s time for an alignment.
