Vehicle Fit

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:

  • Comes as a PAIR
    • Includes both LH (Driver Side) & RH (Passenger Side) OUTER
  • Comes as shown with greasable joint

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.

Our steering and suspension components are 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.
