The first thing we’re gonna do is remove the front wheels and tires. Then we’re gonna remove the tie rod from the knuckle. If it’s stuck, use a hammer. If you use a hammer, hit it right here on the knuckle. Don’t hit the tie rod, just hit it right here with a couple good taps. Once it’s loose, disconnect it from the knuckle. And get something to cut with.
You’re gonna cut the zip tie off of the inner boot. Cut the outer zip tie off as well. Slide your boot down, then grab a big pair of channel locks. We’re gonna go in here and loosen the inner ball-and-socket. Then you’ll want to remove it from the factory rack-and-pinion and set it aside. Grab your provided heavy-duty inner ball and socket and thread it into the rack and pinion.
Once you have inserted it in there, tighten it. It’s a 33 millimeter wrench. If you don’t have a 33 millimeter wrench, you can use a large crescent wrench. We’re gonna tighten it up.
Next, grab your boot and your tie rod. You want to make sure that this side is facing away from the machine. We’re gonna start our boot on this side. We’re gonna take a little bit of lubricant and spray down in the boot just to help it go on a little bit easier. We’re gonna slide it onto the tie rod here just like this. Get it to this point. We’re gonna make sure that this side is facing away from the machine and this side is facing forward to the inside of the machine.
I’m gonna thread it onto the inner ball and socket. Thread it about halfway up the threads then you stop. Then grab your heavy-duty tie rod end. Thread it into the tie rod. Keep in mind, this will be left-handed thread. Thread it in so there’s about half the thread showing.
Then take your boot and slide it up the tie rod and slide it on to the rack and pinion. Once the boot is fully seated onto the rack and pinion, we’re gonna put a zip tie on the boot. Then you’re gonna put one out here on the outer boot as well. This one you won’t want to fully tighten yet. It’s tightened a little bit there so it can still move if you need to move it. You can put a wrench right here and tighten down your jam nut. Once all the adjustments are made, cut off the excess of the zip tie.
Then take our tapered stud provided in the hardware kit and slide it down through the knuckle like that. Take one of the provided castle nuts and thread it on down there. Then we’re gonna take our tie rod end, make sure we have our rotor as straight as we can, and slide it down the top of the stud. Make sure it fully seats. Take our bushing, making sure this side is facing down towards the heim joint, and slide it on there. Grab the other castle nut. Get that started. Then fully tighten both castle nuts and put on our cotter pins. Then repeat the steps for the opposite side.
Reinstall your front wheels and tires. Once the machine is down on the ground, roll it out to make sure the suspension is settled. Once you’ve rolled it back and forth a few times, the suspension should be settled. Go in the machine make sure that your wheel is straight. We’re going to come down here and we’re gonna measure from the center line of this tire in the front and the center line of that tire in the front.
We got Cody here helping us today. Cody, if you just put the tape in the center of the tire there and read off. Looks like we have 57 inches in the front. Looks like we have 56 and 3/4 so we’re gonna make adjustments to it. SuperATV’s heavy-duty tie rods are double adjustable. We have both of our jam nuts loose, so we’re gonna grab hold of the tie rod and turn it while we watch the tire move out. We’re gonna do a couple adjustments here and we’re going to apply the same adjustment to the opposite side. 57 and a quarter. And 57 and a quarter.
Now that the machine’s all lined up, we’re gonna tighten our jamb nuts, make sure our wheels are torqued down, and we’re good to go.
