Tie rod ends are important to the handling of your vehicle. Here’s how to replace yours.
Tie rod ends are a crucial part of your vehicle’s front end, and can cause steering and tracking problems if worn. Front-end shimmy, hard steering, clunks and clanks, an off-center steering wheel, or pulling from one side or the other are all signs of worn tie rods.
Remember to ask your Advance Auto Parts representative about tools and equipment that may make this job easier before embarking on this project. After you're finished, make sure to complete the job with an alignment from a reputable shop and once again you'll be driving straight and true.
Why you should replace your tie rod ends on your personal vehicle:
Potholes and various bumps in the road take their toll on your vehicle's suspension and steering. Your front suspension and steering components take the biggest hits. While some suspension work is best left to the pros, tie rods are easily replaceable on most vehicles.
Advance Auto Parts carries a complete line of quality auto parts, including suspension/steering components and tools to help you get the job done right. Follow these instructions and, for best results, finish up with a front end alignment after the project.
