1. Mount the SST on the housing SST [09634-60013]

Coat knuckle bearings lightly with molybdenum disulphide lithium base grease.

Add preload to the bearing by tightening the nut.

Preload (while turning): 1.8 - 3.8 kg (4.0 - 8.4 lb)

3. Measure the distance A

4. Measure the distance B.

5. The difference between A and B is the total adjusting shim thickness that is required to maintain the correct bearing preload.

6. Apply a light coat of red lead on the center part of rod (4).

7. Press the adapters (1) and (2) against the housing, press the plug (3) against the rod (5), and turn the lever (7) so as to have a line scribed on the rod (5).

8. Bolt on the knuckle spindle to the knuckle. - Note -

Install the bolt over two washers.

9. Dismount the SST from the housing, and mount it on the knuckle. SST [09634-60013]

1. Use care not to erase the scribed line when dismounting and remounting the SST.

2. Make sure that the rod (5) is in the same vertical direction that it was when mounted on the housing.

09634 60013

10. Turn the rod (5) and scribe another line on it.

11. Measure the distance D between the two scribed lines.

12. The thickness of the steering knuckle lower bearing shim E will be the distance D less 3 mm (0.12 in.).

LOWER SHIM THICKNESS E E = D - 3mm

13. The thickness of the steering knuckle^ upper bearing shim F will be differenc between the total adjusting shim thickness C and the shim thickness E.

Compare E and F with the thicknesses of the shims removed at disassembly. If there should be considerable difference, remeasure E and F.
