Looking for advice

Recommended Posts

Going to replace all four tie rod ends, center link and idler arm assembly on my 1970 510. Is it better to drop all together? or is it a pita to drop as one piece? Looking to see if anyone has done it this way. Seems like it would be more work to stay under the car to disconnect all the steering linkage.

LNGI No.2 or better suspension or chassis grease.

Lucas red, Mobil red, mystic #2, I've been pleased with all three.

I've used the Lucas and the Mobile. Bothy great products. Anything is better than a moly based grease. That shit turns to a nasty sticky mess when it gets hot. I really like the John Deere grease #TY6341. It's what is in their bearing & tie rod ends when they come new. I can tell you that high speed bearings last longer with the Deere grease than others.

 

I use it my steering joints too.

jester thanks for the heads up on the moly based. Lockleaf Looks like I can get Lucas red, Mobil red and the mystic at the local napa here so I'll grad one. Need to get this done before I can start driving it again, it's an uneasy feeling when any more than 25mph the steering becomes vague.

Yes. That is actually a breather for it.

And that one is broken! Nissan say NLA, but I got one when I placed an order from Nissanparts.cc
