Installing Ford Steering Rack Limiters...

Anyone have a step by step instruction guide to doing this install? I ordered a bunch and hear its a piece of cake i just need some guidance. Would love to get this done tonight as the weather is getting nicer and i dont want to drive the car since i can make turns at full lock without damaging the wheels.

expose the inner rod by disonnecting the boot and sliding it toward the outer. Turn the wheel to to expose the steeering rod and put on the clip.

You'll need to snip the band that holds the rack boot to the rack, then pull the boot back, and do as stated above. Then secure the rack boot to the rack again with a large zip-tie pulled really tight.

Make sure your limiters are doing what you want first before zip tying the boot back on!
