Tie Rod coupler-sleeve


Does anyone know how tight the two bolts should be on the sleeve for the tie rods?

Not looking for actual torque numbers, just an idea of tightness, real tight, tight, snug? Mine were not really even tightbasically just snug, normal?

Re: Tie Rod coupler-sleeve

Get yourself an Assembly Instruction Manual (a bible) for your Camaro. All the info is there..

108-156 in/lbs (9-13 ft/lbs) is the spec. (UPC-9)
The AIM also shows how the clamps should be positioned in relation the sleeve slot, and the tie rods themselves. The books are worth their weight in gold.. Get one!

Nov 68 Van Nuys. 327 floor-shift-auto, Frost Green and not much else when new.
