Re: Steering Service Kit
You'll need a pitman arm puller also - either rent or buy (~$20), and a big-*** wrench for the nut that holds it to the box. (1 3/8" I think).
Might be easiest if you work on one side at a time. Example - driver's side - remove tie rod, then pitman. Replace pitman then tie rod. Pass side - remove tie rod then idler, replace idler then tie rod.
On the tie rods - remove them as complte units rather than disassembling them. you can assemble the new tie rods on the bench and use the removed tie rods as a guide to adjust length for the new ones. Keep track of driver and pass sides as the lengths are likely different, then assemble the new ones using the grease zerks as your measuring point. This will get your toe adjustment close to what you had so you can get it to the alignment shop safely.
