Re: PST Front End Kit install, dialup warning

Minor tip on steering linkage assembly: you can't install the center link if the Pittman arm and the idler arm are both installed. both studs go in from the bottom and with that tongue on the crossmember there's no way to get enough room. Leave the idler arm loose or off while mounting up the linkage. I laid my old linkage out on the ground and measured the length od the tie-rods, then screwed the news together to match. Considering the amount of stuff changed out here I'm surprised it came out as close as it did.

Tom Terrific or Terrible Tom, depending on the phase of the moon, passing cosmic rays or other factors not fully understood except by my wife.
