      I put this on a Chevy Uplander. The tie rod end on that van was an OEM part and defective after 50,000 miles, like most of the suspension on the van. This product went on without any problems and restored the steering.

                                Hi Oshea, happy to help you! You will need to torque the nuts to 22 foot lbs (30 Nm) plus 180 degrees for your 2003 Buick Rendezvous. For help with your project, I recommend purchasing a Haynes or Chilton repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.

                            • Q:

                              Replacement went great until I cinched the castle nut onto the rod. I was expecting the cotter pin to fit within the openings of the castle nut, which would lock the nut. Instead, the nut is a good bit "above" the pin. Could I have tightened it too much? Shouldn't the "taper" of the rod match the taper of the wheel knuckle, preventing over-tightening?

                                Glad to be of assistance! Yes, it is possible that you may have over tightened the castle nut, you may let the nut back off a bit so that the pin does go through.

                                The tie rod is part of the steering mechanism in a vehicle. A tie rod is a slender structural rod that is used as a tie and capable of carrying tensile loads only.
                                A tie rod consists of an inner and an outer end.
