Created on: 2020-11-17

This video shows you how to install new TRQ outer tie rods on your 2007-2017 Ford Expedition.

Go ahead and remove your center cover here. That's gonna expose your lug nuts. Remove all 6 of your 21-millimeter lug nuts. Remove your wheel. Now, the next thing we're gonna do is break free our jam nut right here. There we are. Remove your outer tie rod end nut. Now, let's go ahead and use our hammer, and we're gonna give our knuckle a couple of loving bonks to break this free. Now, let's use some locking pliers, come right up on this inner tie rod end stud here, and then we'll remove our outer tie rod ends. You wanna make sure you count this on the way out. What I mean by that is, here we go around one, two, three, and then so on. All right. So I've got 23, results may vary.

Okay, friends. Now, it's time to install our brand new outer tie rod end. You wanna make sure you put this in, the same amount of turns that you removed the old one. Let's go ahead and put this back into the knuckle. Start our nut on there. Let's snug up the jam nut. Let's go ahead and snug the tie rod now. And now we'll torque it to 44-foot pounds. Now we need to pay attention to our castle nut and make sure it lines up with the hole and the stud. If it doesn't, you need to continue tightening until the next hole does. That looks good. Let's go ahead and put our little cotter pin in here. And then of course, peen it over so there's no way this nut can loosen up.

Let's go ahead and get our wheel back up on here. Start on the lug nuts and then we'll torque them to manufacturer specifications. All right. Now, with the wheel just barely touching the ground, we're gonna torque these lug nuts to 140-foot pounds. Your little center cover on there, torqued.
