  1. Raise and support the front end on jack stands.
  2. Remove the nut from the knuckle end ball stud. Discard the nut.

  3. Using a screw-type ball joint tool, separate the tie rod ball stud from the knuckle.
  4. On all except C3HD models, remove the nut from the inner tie rod ball stud.
  5. Using a screw-type ball joint tool, separate the tie rod ball stud from the relay rod.
  6. Clean the threaded parts of the tie rod ends thoroughly and count the exact number of threads exposed on each tie rod end. Measure the overall length of the tie rod assembly.
  7. Loosen the clamp nuts, spread the clamps and unscrew each tie rod end.
To install:
  1. Coat the threaded parts of the new tie rod ends with chassis grease. Screw the tie rod ends into the sleeve until the exact number of threads is exposed on each tie rod end. Check the overall length of the new assembly. Adjust as necessary. Don't tighten the clamp nuts yet.
  2. On all except C3HD models, position the tie rod assembly in the relay rod and install a new nut on the ball stud. Tighten the nut to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).
  3. Position the other tie rod end in the knuckle. Install the new nut and tighten it to 46 ft. lbs. (62 Nm) except on C3HD. On C3HD models, tighten the nut to 65 ft. lbs. (88 Nm).
  4. Before tightening the clamp nuts, position the clamp as shown in the accompanying illustrations.
  5. Tighten the clamp nuts 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm) except on C3HD. On C3HD models, tighten the clamp nuts to 65 ft. lbs. (88 Nm).
