Vehicle Fit

This tie rod is just what you need to ensure the safety and integrity of your vehicle's suspension and steering.

Specifications:

  • Fits either the LH (Driver Side) or RH (Passenger Side) FRONT OUTER
  • Replaces dealer part numbers: 53541S7A003, 53541 S7A 003
  • Direct replacement
  • 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. This will ensure proper tracking and even tire wear.

Our steering and suspension components come pre-greased,  sealed for long life and do not require the extra maintenance typically required by greasable versions.

Please Note: Whenever replacing steering components, it is highly recommended to have a professional alignment performed on the vehicle afterwards.  Failure to do so may result in issues with steering and premature tire wear.
