Maybe if we start telling people that the brain is an app, they will start using it?

You're right. It is 109ft-lb. I was thinking it was well north of that.

It is. If you use Newton meters, or in.-lbs.

Assuming the alignment is correct. And the tires don’t pull. And the road crown and ruts don’t get in the way... I’ve been trying to get my steering wheel straight for months! And I mean MONTHS! And it doesn’t seem possible. My OCD is going into over driver and I HATE IT!

My first truck had that problem....

My 2nd. truck has a centered steering wheel. Just another reason not to mess with the drag link.
I certainly would not want them to weld it and remove all possibility of ever centering the steering wheel again.

My local dealer service department does not inspire confidence.

When I was in for my last recall,not the current one,the one before that,but after the one prior to that one.
I complained to the service writer,she said "We just sell 'um."

Nope, that's it. As I said, you get the best possible clamping action all the way through to the tie rod end when the slots are aligned and closely as possible. The less alignment, the more you have to tighten the clamp bolt to fix the tie rod end. If the adjuster sleeve is 90 degrees off from the slot in the link... it's going to be TOUGH to tighten the tie rod end down! You'd probably need to overtorque the clamp bolt wildly.

Took mine in yesterday, 25th, they put it on the alignment rack. Did an alignment, centered the wheel then put blue loctite on the threads and tightened ervery thing up. Said that's all they can do for now Web untill they get the parts in. Will check out at least once a week.

Pictured below is as straight as I could get my 3500. . .



As you can see, it is a tad off to the left.

I might be able to fix that by taking it all apart again (ugh) and turning the rod-end one revolution and turning the adjustment collar back a half turn but. . .
Experience has taught me that once a job like this is done 99% perfect and you go back for that 1% things usually go very wrong.

If by chance I "go back in" and try to get it 100% perfect, I'll certainly post a follow-up report.
I'll also try to get a good pic of that split collar adjustment piece for ya'

Not confused now, HUH!

FYI,
I just dropped my truck off for other things at the Dealer. (Water leak 3rd brake light and Bed Cap Rail deformed from the sun) and I asked about this Recall and I know the service writer pretty well as I used to work there as a mechanic 10+ years ago and she informed me they couldn't do anything as parts are unavailable.

And the plot thickens.

Today my girlfriend took her 2500 in for a bunch of recall work. I'd told her not to let them mess with the shifter interlock, as it works as God intended it: The shifter can be pulled out of Park without applying the brake.

On the recall notice it said that if the jam nut(s) weren't tight, they'd replace the parts, and if the were tight they'd weld it.
Not wanting it welded, I loosened one jam nut a bit (it wasn't tight to spec anyway), and marked the parts so that I could tell if anything had been replaced. Then told her not to let them weld anything.

Okay, so she gets back and I crawl underneath to check. Nothing had been touched. The jam nut I loosened was right where I'd left it.
"No parts available" they'd said, but you'd think they would at least tighten the darn jam nut.
Oh well, nothing but the best from our local, friendly dealerships, as usual.
