    Default what parts do I order

    The steering felt funny as I was creeping along the road so I went out front of the 1996 ford F350 and saw the rods on the ground. I need to order from Napa what is it? They need a name of the part before they ship!

    Tie-rod end passenger side. Exciting right huh??
    When replacing just strike the knuckle around the joint with a hammer...should fall out.

    Truck pulls trailer, trailer hold boat, boat has Volvo D4 with DPH-A, DPHA needs intermediate bearing and ujoints changed, plus mechanic is going to need a ride from the runway.

    grease works really good in the ball joints/tie rod ends/ Also one other thing here U mine want to check your ball joints two. Jack front end up till front tires is off ground,put bar under tire and pull up if it moves replace them you don't want them to break like your tie rod ends. I just did the front end this summer in my dodge it was about 700. Have fun and be safe.

    Default Online Ford Parts - 50% Cheaper

    I have ordered parts from the attached website and found the prices and
    service very good. http://www.fordparts.com/
    In most cases they will be significantly cheaper than anyone in Alaska. I always like to support the locals - but sometimes there are limits to what a person will pay - especially when you can save enough to buy boat gas for a good weekend.
    How stupid is it to be wasting tons of salmon and halibut as bycatch in the Bering Sea and then have the coastal villages hollaring they have no food? It's got to stop!

    Why the new adjuster??
    Measure from one outer grease nipple to inner grease nipple so you get close to the total length you need and reuse the old adjuster and save yourself a few bucks

    The old adjuster looks in good shape!!!

    It is a boating site. There is no boating now. Everyone is really board waiting for spring. It seems the scope of topics is getting broader as the winter continues.

    While you're down there doing stuff, pull that plug out of the upper ball joint. You may be able to run a 90 degree fitting in there. If the 90 won't clear the u-joint, than run a straight grease fitting, and use a right angle coupler to grease it.

    Doesn't make it relevant to boating. If there's no specific sub-forum for a topic, it should be posted in the GENERAL DISCUSSION forum. That's what GD is for. Would that be so difficult?
