Steering tube and Track rod adjustments - where are the details?

Recommended Posts


Sorry, but I'm having either a blonde or a blind moment and need adult guidance! My vehicle is a 1991 110 CSW and I'm replacing the three TREs, but cannot find the adjustment procedure or details anywhere in the LR WSM or in the Tech Archive. I've got the toe-out spec (1.19 - 2.38 mm), and dimensions provided by Western (http://forums.lr4x4.com/index.php?showtopic=82292), but what is the correct set up procedure to follow, please?

Should I first set the track rod to give the necessary toe out, and then set the steering tube adjustable end to fit, checking the toe out again to ensure that it has not changed? If not, what should I do?

Any and all advice will be very much appreciated.

Thank you, rich broom, it's as I thought, and thank you, Western, for the pointer. I had read that string previously but couldn't find it in the Tech Archive yesterday. It's in the Tools and Fabrication, and, of course, I didn't look there! Perhaps it should be in the Tech Archive, as you yourself had suggested in that thread.
