    You didn't need a tap, you needed a die.
    Or did you ruin your castle nut trying to use it as a die?
    If you didn't have a die for those threads you should've just used a mini hack saw to cut them.

    Family tax return present this year is a inflatable kayak to float the rivers. I am super excited, all last summer my wife really wished we had one.

    I should have clarified but this is for passenger side. I messed up the threads on the driver side tie rod bolt, but was able to file them back and get the nut on.

    Now when I did passenger, I messed up the threads of the castle nut when I flipped it upside-down on the tie rod bolt to hit it with a sledge to separate it from the spindle.

    The tap/die set I bought only goes up to M12x1.50 but I need a M16x1.50 to fix the castle nut. I tried for a few hours with the tip of a file to get the threads back in order enough to use the tie rod bolt of a tap, but started to ruin those so I stopped.

    Only hope is the new castle nut. Although I also figured out my new spindles push up against the break dust shield and put pressure on my caliber at full flex. No idea on a flat stance. So I need to fix that as well somehow

    need to bend or cut the dust shield. common with spindle gussets.
    I feel like I might have one of those castle nuts from replacing my tie rods but don't know if I could find it.

    Im going to wait on the dust shield stuff. Don't want to mess anything else up trying to do it myself.

    I've got one castle nut reserved at Stevinson West Toyota, roommate is taking me over there to get it in the morning. Hopefully I can get the truck back together before the snow hits

    Definitely made a huge difference. I hadn't really driven it recently, but compared to the last few times I had it out, way better.

    What hasn't been modified?
    @thefatkid whats the methoud to remove an ecgs bushing? Specifically the old style that is 3/4” bushing and 1/4inch metal?

    After 2 hrs of hitting it with a slide hammer and destroying the remover tool it never moved....

    Although the scars on the bushing seemed to help @Littles vibe issue a bit.

    Heed this advice and fix them now. I had to pull both tires and brake calipers a week after my install because I was rubbing. I had hammer the shields off the truck to make them fit around the gussets, then hammer them on the truck without the brake disk to mold them around the gussets.
