Install the Steering Knuckles

I don’t have a picture for this step, but it is easy to do. Locate the ziploc bag labeled ‘UPPER BALL JOINT/STEERING KNUCKLE’. Install the four factory lower bolts with Loc-Tite and torque them to 43 foot-pounds.

Next, slide the axle shaft through the bearing assembly and install the axle nut. The axle nut should be in the ziploc bag labeled ‘AXLE HUB’. Torque it to 174 foot-pounds.

Then attach the upper ball joint to the upper control arm. Torque it to 105 foot-pounds.

Finally, attach the tie rod ends. Torque them to 53 foot-pounds.
