    Default New inner tie rods, tie rod ends and arb bushes fitted today!

    As per the title. I changed the inner tie rods, tie rod ends and the ARB bushes today. I'm going to do the rear tomorrow weather permitting.

    I just took my time and measures everything like nut positions to keep like for like when fitting the new.

    Once the rears have been done I think a four wheel alignment will be called for on the hunters machine.

    No more steering wheel vibration @ "cough" 70.

    I done the rear drop links/stabilizer bushes and rear ARB's today, what a pain of a job. Next to no room to get the ARB's in passed the retaining bracket. All's well now though, the ride is a smooth as silk. I'm well pleased.

    Cheers bud, the rear ARB's on the Signum are really tight to get in. The bracket that holds them can't move very much Unlike the Vec.
    I see your just down the road so if you need a hand with anything just shout up!

    Did you toot at me as we passed a week or so back?

    @jodiexii First off I would change both sides and I would also put new track rod ends on depending on how long they had been on the car. Its not too difficult.
    1) jack the car up place securely on axle stand/stands then remove the road wheel.

    2) Slacken the lock nut that locks the track rod end. I measured the gap between the gator end recess (on the tie rod) and the start of the track rod end with a steel rule for reference when refitting).

    3) Remove the nut holding the track rod end in place tap the hub assembly with a hammer, the tie rod end should pop out. Alternatively leave the nut on the end and tap it up with the hammer. Unscrew the tie rod end once removed.

    4) remove the inner tie rod gator. Unscrew the inner tie rod from the steering rack with a 32 or 36 mm spanner (depends on the rods).

    Hint, you may need to turn the steering slightly to position the inner tie rod nut end between the sub frame and suspension to allow access with the spanner.

    Re-assemble in reverse order using any measurements taken!

    Your tracking may need adjusting once re-assembled
