Just loosen the locking nuts slightly and make the adjustment. It's a little bit of trial and error to get them right, but it's not difficult.ree wrote:I'm up to fixing it though. Is that just tightened to a specific torque at the nut on the tail end of the ring? Or is it thread locked and torqued? I probably have the printed directions somewhere...but I'm not going to look for them in the mess that is my uncompleted office and I'm not finding them online anymore.
No. But you can get a good idea pretty quickly, jack one wheel up at a time and trying moving it side to side, there will be a small amount of free play, but should not be a lot. Having someone watch the steering wheel helps.Joe H wrote:Is there any way to tell if they are in need of replacement by looking at them?
If you can change a Pitman or idler arm, you can easily install the kit. It was a little tricky the first time, but it was real easy the second time. If you don't know what you are doing with the vehicles steering, don't mess with your it, get someone else to do it, it is only a 1 hr job.How hard is it to install the Cognito kit?
Yes, or any alignment store can do it, most likely much cheaper than a dealer.Could I just get the kits and take them to the dealer to get them to replace them and install the kit?

So far so Good. Tighten it up ater your ride with it though, somehow mne got a little loose (even with the thread locker).
Have you noticed that hard wheeling or highway use tends to loosen it up? How often do you check it?
