Hello All,

I have just installed the new upgraded steering setup on my 2005 Ram 2500 Hemi. I was wondering what are the tire rod ends supposed to be tightened to? What is the torque spec for the nut on the threaded post?

Thanks,

Dave

this is off a 2004 manual,which should be real close if not exact


INSTALLATION

2. Install the lock washer and retaining nut on the pitman
shaft and tighten nut to 251 Nm (185 ft. lbs.).
3. Install the drag link (1) to the pitman arm (5). Install
the nut (4) and tighten to 54 Nm (40 ft. lbs.) Then
an additional 90.
4. Remove the supports and lower the vehicle to the

(Refer to 2 - SUSPENSION/WHEEL ALIGNMENT -
STANDARD PROCEDURE).

NOTE: Position the clamp on the sleeve so retaining
bolt is located on the bottom side of the
sleeve

SilverHemiDan,

Thats great, do you also have the specs for the tierod ends at the knuckles(end of axles)?
Wow, I definately tightened mine up way too much, guess I better go loosen them a bit.
