Vehicle Fit

These outer tie rod ends are just what you need to ensure the safety and integrity of your vehicle's suspension and steering.

Specifications:

  • Comes as a PAIR
    • Fits both the LH (Driver Side) & RH (Passenger Side) FRONT OUTER
  • Replaces dealer part numbers: 48520-0M-085, 485200M085
  • 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. This will ensure proper tracking and even 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.

Delivered quick and fit perfectly!
The A1Auto website was very easy to navigate, the items shipped quickly and the parts contained all required items (tie rods end, castle nut, tie rod nut and cotter pin). I’ll have to wait to see how long the tie rod ends last, but it was certainly less expensive and much easier than going to one of the local auto parts stores.
