REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
See Figures 1 and 2
Fig. 1: Steering linkage
Fig. 2: Remove the tie rod ends from the steering arms and connecting rod with a puller
Remove the cotter pins and retaining nuts at both ends of the tie rod and from the end of the connecting rod where it attaches to the tie rod.
Remove the nut attaching the steering damper pushrod to the tie rod bracket and move the damper aside.
Remove the tie rod ends from the steering arms and connecting rod with a puller.
Count the number of threads showing on the tie rod before removing the ends, as a guide to installation.
Loosen the adjusting tube clamp bolts and unthread the ends.
Installation is the reverse of removal. Torque the steering damper-to-tie rod nut and the ball stud-to-drag link to 55 ft. lbs. (75 Nm); ball stud nut-to-the steering knuckle to 35 ft. lbs. (47 Nm).
Adjust toe-in, if necessary.
I think you are going to get questioned to death and not be paid just like me when I helped diagnose the tie rod ends and didn't get paid on the other post byCustomer
As it states in #5 loosen the clamp and unscrew the ends I count three tie rod ends and one tie rod.
Check out this link the person kept asking questions and kept paying.
