The nuts on bracket that connects the tie rods together at the rack where loose.
Not sure how that happened as they where new nylock nuts last year.

Thighten the nuts and an alingment and all is well.


I believe that the rack piston is threaded and the nuts are supposed to act as an additional fastener. Make sure that you have the correct bolts installed.

It was the nuts on the studs that pass thru the inner tie rod ends and connected to the bracket that connects to the rack piston. The rack piston bolts and nuts are correct and where tight.

There are 16 rings on my driveway
