2006 Buick Lacrosse CXL I'm replacing the outer tie rod. I have been unable to find the torque spec for tightening the castle nut which holds the tie rod end to the steering knuckle. Does anyone have this spec or know where I can find it? I used to look in the Haynes manual, but the auto stores no longer keep them in stock. Thanks
Here you go,
"Tighten the nut to 30 N.m plus 120 degrees (22 lb ft plus 120 degrees). Inspect to ensure that 21/2-41/2 threads are visible above the nylon washer."
