Install the spring link bolt next. Screw the nut on just until you can get a cotter pin installed in the hole through the bolt. This photo shows the nut on the top, but GM typically installed the nut on the bottom at the spring. You can also install the tie rod into the knuckle housing and hook up the sway bar at this point. The tie rod should be torqued to 32 lb-ft. Be sure to put a cotter pin in to keep it from backing out. Also, we installed new shocks from Corvette Central to improve the ride. If youre putting new shocks on your ride, this would be the time to do it.
