These Tie Rod Assemblies 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 LH (Driver Side) & RH (Passenger Side) FRONT
  • Includes both inner & outer tie rods
  • Replaces dealer part numbers: 1J0422804H, 1J0-422-804H, 1J0422803H, 1J0-422-803H
  • 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.
