The Steering Tie Rod

Step 01

Position the Steering Tie Rod under the chassis. The offset couping (arrow below) should be on the driver’s side facing to the rear. Fit both ends of the rod over the steering knuckle posts on either end. Secure the ends with two (2) LM screws.

This should remain loose to allow both steering knuckles to steer in unison. This is also your friendly reminder to try using 3-in-One Oil on all screws going into metal:

Step 02

Lay the Front Anti-Sway Bar across the front of the chassis. Insert the downward-pointing pin into these sockets of the left lower control arms (circled below). Fit the posts on the Front Anti-Sway Bar into these recesses in the main chassis (arrow below):

Secure the Front Anti-Sway Bar into place from below with two (2) HP screws:

Thoughts


That was a short issue! If you find out that the pins on the ends of the Front Anti-Sway Bar do not seat all the way, use a small drop of super glue to hold them in place. The Steering Tie Rod is metal and the Front Anti-Sway Bar is plastic.

Running Total of screws used so far: 138
