When installing The Cure for Jeep, be sure to verify that the pin on your tie rod end seats completely in the taper.
Manufacturing tolerances in the pin and the taper cause some tie rod ends to seat higher or lower in the taper than others. One sign that the taper is not completely seated is if the cotter pin hole does not sit as far through the castle nut as it did with the standard dust boot. To verify your pin is seated in the taper, apply a marking compound (like gear marking compound, grease, lipstick, etc.) to the pin and tighten down the tie rod end then remove it again. Check the pin and taper to see if the marking compound is spread thinly and evenly around the pin. If it does not spread evenly, the pin is likely not seated completely. Sand down the face of The Cure for Jeep until the pin seats fully.
Depending on the shape of your tie rod ends, some filing may also be required to prevent interferences around the lip or face of The Cure.
The Cure for Jeep is only meant to be used on the drag link tie rod end in Y-link steering. Using The Cure for Jeep at the steering knuckle and pitman arm tie rod ends will not allow necessary flex in your steering system and could lead to failure of your tie rod ends, The Cure, or other steering components.
