Thirty-six years of road sludge made the rebuild look pretty formidable when we pulled the front wheels off the car. The first order of business was to undo the steel brake lines and remove each brake flex line from its frame-mounted bracket. After the brakes are disconnected, remove the cotter pin and the castle nut on each outer tie-rod end and separate it from the steering arm with a pickle fork (shown). We then removed the idler arm and separated the pitman arm from the center link, which allowed us to remove the entire steering linkage as a complete assembly.
