BE 2 - 2 1/8 IN. (51-54 mm)
ON NARROWEST SIDE.
(17.1) When toe-in is set, loosen nuts (13), and push or pull tie rod (14) until 2 -2 1/8 in. (51-54 mm) is
measured between tie rod and equalizer beam (14.1) on narrowest side. Then tighten nuts.
Steps (18) through (21) are for adjustment of axle No. 2 toe-in.
Loosen two nuts (15) on axle No. 2 tie rod (16).
Shortening tie rod will increase distance measured at front of tires on axle No, 2.
Lengthening tie rod will decrease distance measured at front of tires.
Turn tie rod (16) to shorten or lengthen as needed.
Tie rod clamps on axle No. 2 must be positioned so nuts and screws are positioned on
bottom of tie rod. If they are not, damage can result from clamps striking shock
absorber mount during vehicle operation.
No. 2 tie rod has a slight bend. This should be straight down when adjustment is
complete or damage to tie rod could result.
Tighten two nuts (15) after adjusting tie rod (16).
Repeat steps (1) through (7).
