Information - Steering linkage

Toe-in of any car is regulated by the rotation of the tie rod in the ends. The maximum turning of the wheels is limited by the thrust adjustment screws, screwed into the steering knuckle.

In order to remove the tie rod, first you need to remove the ball-joint of the toothed bar. To do this, use a special spanner. Then you need to measure the length of the tie rod with head. Loosen the joint cover and return it back to the tie rod. When screwing the steering gear, set the spanner on the ball joint of the tie rod. Remove the tie rod. Be carefully to preserve the distance measured before. Again screw the tie rod into the toothed bar. It is prohibited to use liquid fixing the threaded connection on the tie rod. Next, you should install the joint cover on the toothed bar frame.
