Torque setting for the castle nut on the tie rod


Recommended Posts

Ight yeah so I had to replace the boot on my power steering rack, my mate said their should be a touqe setting on the castle nut, I couldn't find one (online or Gregorys manual), so I I just tightened it so it was tight as f**k (not the lowest it could get but tight) and then I lined it up wit the hole, plugged the pin through it and yeh. If any of y'all agree or dis agree to the way I handled it let me know Ur thoughts ay

Your tight as f**k could very well be my barely tightened. 
anyway doesn’t really matter, it can’t undo because of the pin and isn’t really critical component so what eva

Disagree, It is a very critical component being part of the steering. Not saying this one will come loose if it is RFT and has a good split pin, but I know of people who have died from a tie rod end failing.
