Are there any torque specifications that I should tighten the castle nut to on the new outer tie rod? Or just get it as tight as it will go?

I just crank em till they feel good and tight, then maybe a tad more to get the pin to go in.

Go pretty snug toward tight and stop where you can put the cotter pin through. All set.
