Exactly What I Ordered
I have yet to install the parts I ordered on my vehicle. Although I give an A+ for the ease of ordering and the timeliness in which my parts arrived. I can't wait to get them on my car and let you know how great they are. :)

Who makes these tie rods? And is there a need for a special tool for the inside tie rods?
Cody S on Oct 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I do not recall the mfg., but the quality was excellent. A very good deal.. Yes, a special tool was required. I believe I borrowed it from Advance Auto. No charge, just a deposit, that was returned to my credit card. My son hit a chuck hole. Damaged wheel bearing, and inter tie rod housing cracked. Once completed, worked great. Good Luck
