Lol, its supposed to be tightened to 350-400 ft lbs, so Im guessing a crescent wrench aint doin $hit!. Should be 46mm. Kinda crosses over to a 1 13/16".

Thanks Trev

I know the track bar was 400 ish but the pitman arm also ? wow

another issue is trashing the box when it's sitting against the stops and doing the torque

some kits come with a tightening fixture to avoid that issue

thats not good the sector shaft taper may be fubared or the Arm itself

but also getting to the 350-400 lbs spec isn't easy so you might not be getting it
