the post just swivels with my tightening movements. I can't get the nut to go down more than 2 threads. I even tried clamping the post below the arm, with needle-nosed vise-grips. is there a trick to this?
Thanks in advance,
Alright man, I'll tell you the secret! First off, make sure the threads are all nice and clean on both rod end and nut, then place a couple blocks of wood under the tie rod end and a bottle jack on top of the wood. Now just apply alot of pressure to the bottom of the tie rod end by jacking up the bottle jack and thread that nut on. <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">
