1997-2004 Buick Regal Outer Tie Rod Driver or Passenger Side

  • New

Your outer tie rod end connects the inner tie rod sleeve and end to the front spindle or knuckle. Over time the greasable joint can wear causing loose connections and a sloppy steering feel.

Specifications:

  • Fits either LH (Driver Side) or RH (Passenger Side) OUTER
  • Direct replacements
  • Built to strict quality control standards

Remember whenever you are replacing any front end or steering components you should have your vehicle professionally aligned as soon as possible. When installed correctly and an alignment performed, this tie rod end could also reduce uneven tire wear.
