Question about 1995 Chevrolet Caprice
I went to a few mechanics who said i should change my center link does anyone know how
First buy the new one.Then set the front of the car on jack stands high enough to get under the car.You will see the longish link that should look just like your new one.The connections are press fit. Remove the cotter pins and remove the nuts (save these). You will need to buy or rent a pickle fork. 2 sizes available. Rent both. You will also need a small sledge hammer. 3-5 lbs. The pickle forks are a wedge.Place the wedge end in the press fit front end to center link connection to unpress the fit that had the nut and cotter pin. Be careful when you swing the hammer to hit the end of the pic.fork to unpress or separate the joint.You might have to hit it very hard to break it loose. Again, be careful and use thick gloves and safety glasses.
Install the new one exactly how the old one came off.I mean the same direction. Tighten up the nuts tight and allow line up for the cotter pin to go back in.
Do this with the jack stands placed under the front frame(behind the front wheels) on solid pavement, in the shade and do not be in a hurry.
I hope this helps you. Be Careful!
