Tie rod ES2010L - castle nut question.

I've searched the web along with just about all forums. Not able to find the answer..

I purchased a 1 ton UTK kit from a well known vendor. I've sent them an email, waiting for reply.

Tie rod part number ES2010L castle nut has the wrong pitch. I emailed Moog to confirm, they say it's 5/8 - 18. Checked various parts stores, that size does not fit. Local parts stores, HD/Lowes, napa, no one has a nut that fits.

Could someone confirm correct nut size?

Thanks,

Joe

On my kit, all 4 TRE's used the same thread pitch nut, but the high angle TRE @ the pitman arm had a different size nut (shorter height & smaller wrench size)

Re: Tie rod ES2010L - castle nut question.

I took the tie rod this morning to Ace Hardware. Tried different castle nuts. M16 x1.50 fit perfectly. Very strange.

5/8-18, would go maybe 3 threads and stop.

I'll go one extra to keep in the XJ, in case I mess that one up, if I ever have to remove it.

Thanks for the feedback.

That makes me think you have the wrong TRE in the box

Yeah that is not a MOOG joint. The hardware is all wrong.

Re: Tie rod ES2010L - castle nut question.

This is what a Moog ES2010 looks like.



To the best of my knowledge, Stinkyfab is the only vendor providing actual Moog joints.

Tie rod ES2010L - castle nut question.

Hopefully the vendor will reply on Monday. All the tie rods arrived attached to the rods. They were not in a box.

Thanks for the input.

Re: Tie rod ES2010L - castle nut question.

Looking at every "ES2010L" on rockauto, that appears to be an Ultra Power brand.

The cheapest they have. It sells for $5.
