The rack was then installed in the bracket and the chromed tube drag link was fastened to the passenger-side steering arm with a tie rod end, castle nut, and cotter pin. The other end of the tube is threaded to the output shaft of the steering rack. Half the threads from the output shaft should extend into the tube. At the steering arm end, half the threads from the tie rod end should extend into the tube. The tube should be adjusted so that an equal number of threads are showing at each end, before tightening the jam nuts.
