57 Chevy Truck tie rod upgrade

Do the steering arms require reaming for the upgraded tie rod?

Re: 57 Chevy Truck tie rod upgrade

I used the heavy duty set from CPP. And no reaming was needed. Grind off crimp at ball studs, and drill down to relieve pressure, and drive out with punch and big hammer. New tie rod ends fit steering arms perfectly
