FRONT AND MIDDLE AXLE REPLACEMENT (Continued).
Remove 5/8 in. bolts (4) and self locking nuts securing both ends of the four upper and
lower torque rods securing the axle. Discard bolts and nuts.
For torque rods attached to the axle tower, pry off the metal plug caps from the
towers to gain access to the torque rod self locking bushing nuts.
Remove spigot caps (3) and torque rods (5).
It is suggested to mark one end of the torque rod tube relative to installation
location and orientation prior to removal of the torque rods to avoid possible
reversing of torque rod during reinstallation.
