I bought a pair of these for my wife's Taurus to mate to the new inner tie rods. The outer tierod end was the same length as the OEM but less robust - therefore, lighter. The grease fitting makes them routinely serviceable. These fit and installed easily. Each came with a new jam-nut (in addition to the castle nut, cotter pin and zerk) - which was unexpected. The jam nut was a match in size (stoutness) to the one Ford installed on the inner tie rod shaft.

The price was right and I expect to get good service out of these for many years. Rgds, Coach

The seals on this tie rod end are not good. They are not tight around the knuckle. This is not a good part for a newer model car. If your car is old you might consider this, since the poor seals are not going to keep the moisture out of it. It will need lots of grease to keep it from failing. The castle nut was a toy. I used the nut that was on the previous tie rod end, it was much more substantial. If your car is less than ten years old, go with Moog or some other brand name that is known for its quality.

      The Outter tie rod end was easy to install. Just count the turns when removing the old one and install the new one with the same number of turns and secure the lock nut. After a front end alignment, you're good to go.

            installed in less than 20 mins, hardest part is taking the tire off and trying to keep alignment somewhat in same place, i recomend using white out on the threads to mark the position of the old tierod end. this will save you money and time later.

              i had been having problems while driving 55mph and up because my front tire vibrated more than it should. so here is am driving 50mph on route 70. lucky for me people just passed me and didn't blow their horns at me. so i am back driving my normal speed again.

                • Q:

                  I have changed the tie rod on my driver side. When I change the tie rod on my passenger side do I need to use the same brand tie rod? If I don't will it affect my alignment?
