Failure to do so will cause the coil assembly in the steering column to become un-centered which will cause damage to the coil assembly.
  2. Lock the steering column in the straight ahead position.
  3. Attempt to turn the steering wheel in order to verify the steering column is locked.
  4. Disable the supplemental inflatable restraint system.

NOTE
If you are replacing the steering gear, measure the location of the match mark made on the original inner tie rods. Use this measurement in order to make a corresponding mark on the replacement steering gear.

  4. Place match marks on the pinion shaft and on the steering gear housing.
  5. Verify the steering wheel and the front wheels are in the straight-head position.
  6. Install the 2 insulators to the steering gear.

    NOTE
    Do NOT tighten the bracket bolts before tightening the lower steering shaft clamp bolt.
  8. Install the steering gear and the 4 bolts to the vehicle.
  9. Align the match mark on the pinion shaft with the match mark on the steering gear housing.
