I believe the BD tie rods come with a wrench flat on the tube to hold it in place while you torque down the jam nut. If not, try a pipe wrench to hold it.

Neither tie rod end that went to the knuckle would torque. On the drag link they torqued fine. So I just put washers under the nut on the tie rod ends and got the cotter pin in to get it home.

I'm not sure what to do next. I read some things online that some people just run them with washers in it. Not sure what to do?

Hey Samantha Just changed my one tie rod that came with the kit. I got another left hand thread Moog. Torqued to 40 ft lbs. Factory. The tie rod that comes in the kit is ****.

I have the same kit. I never even tried the supplied rod end. I bought the 3 Moog ends I needed and the one end I went to a heim joint end. I run an SOA so I did a modified drag link flip which required something other than a standard TRE on the knuckle side. The Moog's all fit fine on mine. here is a trick for tightening a spinning TRE. take a drift and insert into the cotter pin hole and then use an open end wrench and tighten till it hits the drift. Usually the 1/8 turn is enough pressure to hold the stud to finish tightening the nut. another method is to use a jam nut instead of the castle nut to tighten also using the drift to hold the stud but with a jamb nut you won't get the interference of the slots against the drift pin. torque it down then remove the jam nut and install the castle nut.
