Pre Trip – Engine Compartment

Steering Linkage

Tip: {SD} {MH}

Note: Make sure you mention any castle nuts and cotter pins that are securing them!

There are a number of components I am going to address together. They include:

  1. Steering Shaft
  2. Pitman Arm
  3. Drag Link
  4. Steering Knuckle
  5. Tie Rod

“The steering linkage components I am inspecting include a steering shaft, a pitman, a drag link, a steering knuckle, and a tie rod. None of these show Sign Of Damage and there does not appear to be any Missing Hardware. The castle nuts are secure and locked in place with a cotter pin.”
