Part Details

  • Quantity:   4 Piece Set


  • Comes as a SET of 4
    • Fits both LH (Driver Side) & RH (Passenger Side) INNER & 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.

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.

Tie rod ends replacement
My 2002 4x4 Ford Ranger had worn/damaged tie rod ends. These replacements came just in time, and to my surprise and delight came with grease fittings which Im tickled about. Factory units were sealed :( So now I can grease my tie rod ends after or before my overlanding/camping trips through the North GA mountains

Great parts
The parts were as described and had everything included that I needed to replace all the parts. The grease was there and so were the pins. All that was really missing was a new boot clamp for the inner tie rod

The shipping timing was excellent. Two days after they arrived I installed them and they were a perfect fit. I certainly liked the price much better than if I had walked into a local parts store. I might have gotten only one part for the price that I paid for the whole front -ends worth of parts. Thanks for the great bargain! I dont shop anywhere else from now on!

Customer Q&A
Ask a question to 1A Auto customers who purchased the product
Every manufacturer has separate standards that they rely on as well as materials used. You do not specify where your product comes from or who makes it. Can you clarify such things for me?

Parts Ive ordered and used from 1AAuto are not OEM but seem to meet those standards just the same as the three local parts vendors in my area. All are marked "made in China" but Ive had no problems with failures of any kind and have used 1AAuto for over three years now.
