TR4/4A inner tie rod ball joint tension


Senior Member
After dismantling, cleaning, and inspecting the steering rack guts on my '63 tr4 restore project all seems to be in good shape so now reassembling. So far so good but I'm not sure how much tension to to put on the inner ball joint. Do I tighten the housing nut just up to the point that when I push the rod one way or the other it stays put?
