Toyota Land Cruiser 76/78/79 Series V8 Models
(6 CYLINDER MODELS IN OUR STORE)
This listing is for one brand new Adjustable Tie Rod arm (Track - Rock Rod) suit all V8 76/78/79" Series Cruisers
This is the arm that runs behind the diff from left to right; it is designed to keep the wheels parallel ensuring they follow the same wheel track. If you launch the front of your Patrol over an obstacle, be it a rock or tree, when it lands it has to land on something right? If it’s not the diff housing it will most likely be the Tie Rod Arm, if this breaks you will not be driving home in a straight line without some handy bush mechanics.
Some of its features are
- They are significantly stronger than standard - and that's what you need in an arm that is positioned behind the front diff.
- It is adjustable. It may be lengthened or shortened to keep wheel toe correct.
- Supplied with Heavy duty, Greasable Tie Rod Ends – so replaceable if need be.
- Supplied with new Grease nipples, castle nuts, split pins
- 34mm OD & 6.5mm Wall Thickness!!
They are easy enough to install at home in the driveway, the hardest bit is removing the original arm, and it takes some persuasion with a hammer to loosen the Tie rod from the swivel housing.
If your toe setting is correct...
Measure the original tie rod arm from pin to pin, adjust and lock the new arm to the same measurement and install.
If your toe is incorrect, or you want to be sure....
When removed you can measure the inside lip of left to right rim, front to back to ensure the wheels are even, take this measurement and set your new Adjustable Tie Rod arm.
Mount the new Tie Rod arm, tighten the castle nut, and make sure you put the new split pin in!!!
Generally they shouldn’t take long to change over. If you know you are going to do it soon, Give each side a few applications of WD-40 or similar.
A few mm adjustment can make a fair amount of difference so it is important to be as specific as possible, When you have finished if you are not happy with the Wheel, pull to the side, ect, it is recommended to get a professional wheel alignment.
All supplied with Greasable Heavy Duty Tie Rod ends. These are not like conventional tie rod ends, they must be greased!
That's pretty much it, any questions ask away.
